Flocare started operation in 1984 with a portfolio of UK companies with Solids and Fluids handling expertise.
With the break-up of the British Steam Specialties Group, Soliflo, as we were originally called, concentrated on the fluid control products of Rhodes and the KEK/Mucon solids processing and handling equipment. While operating a contract solids processing plant in Wynberg, Sandton, Soliflo was also a partner in a sugar product plant in Swaziland called Sunshine Sugars. It also introduced into SA the Kanon range of fluid loading equipment.
In 1998 the name Soliflo went with the transfer of the major capital equipment marketing activities to set up a new company. Flocare was renamed to look after the component spectrum and it added further products to its portfolio. Then the solids handling ranges of Kemutec was put under a sister company called Mucon which has now been transfered to DC Weighing.
In 2005 it was decided to relocate the head office to the village of Hoekwil on the Garden Route where full contact is maintained with our customer and supplier bases through the internet and phone etc.
The operation is augmented by our Stores facility in Emmarentia which successfully imports, stores and distributes our product lines.
