The FLO-CODE pipeline identification system (a.k.a. Flowcoding), which integrates color code, description of content/function and flow direction into one mark, was invented by a Norwegian engineer who, in 1963, sold the registered design, tradename and worldwide marketing rights to our Company. The first decades thereafter, we were mainly involved in pipeline identification onboard ships and complex on-shore piping installations (process-industry, hospitals, hotels and larger office buildings) while we over the last 40 years have become increasingly involved in the oil- and gas industry.
On-shore building industry:
We are heavily involved in the on-shore building industry where we are complete supplier of identification marks for pipelines, ducts, valves and equipment including safety signs for fire-fighting and escape routes. In addition, we have developed digital manual valve guides, which more or less have become a must for the operators of complex and piping systems. The guides are delivered to our customers with “as built” drawings in Autocad format. Valve guides can also be delivered in paper format at request.
We have over the years delivered pipeline identification materials to hundreds (if not thousands) of ships under flags of numerous nationalities, in conformity with ISO, National or Company standards.
Over the later years, the shipbuilding industry in the Far East has become one of our major customers.
The FLO-CODE system has also become a “standard” for the Norwegian, Danish, French, Singaporean and Australian navies.
