Resinous flooring manufacturer Dur-A-Flex Inc. has appointed Murty Bhamidipati, Ph.D., as its new manager of research and development.

Dr. Murty Bhamidipati was recently made manager of R&D for Dur-A-Flex.

Bhamidipati has 18 years of industrial experience in coatings development and has worked for the company for  five years. He earned a Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and a BS in chemistry from Andhra University in India.

"Murty has taken a natural leadership role and is, without doubt, an extremely qualified individual whose accomplishments reflect his tremendous work ethic and dedication to Dur-A-Flex," said David Hughes, vice president of Marketing, Research and Development.

Based in East Hartford, CT, Dur-A-Flex has more than 40 years of  experience in seamless commercial and industrial flooring systems and polymer components—epoxies, urethanes and methyl methacrylates (MMA) plus premium colored quartz aggregates. The company is the principal supplier of colored quartz aggregate to the seamless flooring industry.

Expanding Asian Market

Dur-A-Flex also announced that it had recently appointed IL DO Trading Co. Ltd. (Seoul, South Korea) and Hiep Hiep Phat Trading Co. Ltd. (Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam) as exclusive distributors and installers for the company's systems in those countries.

Both companies will offer all of Dur-A-Flex's flooring systems, including urethane, epoxy, methyl methacrylate and colored aggregates.

Dur-A-Flex's president and COO Peter V. Ferris recently visited CEO Brian Doan at Hiep Hiep Phat Trading Co. at its Vietnam headquarters in Ho Chi Minh City.

IL DO Tradiing, founded in 1993, is also a distributor for Total Concrete Solutions, according to Dur-A-Flex, while Hiep Hiep Phat (HHP) has locations in three cities and is the top floor installer in Vietnam.

Dur-A-Flex has partnered with companies on five continents and continues to expand by targeting partners that complement its own strengths, the company stated.
