The Ashford Formula was recently featured in Concrete Technology Today Magazine (Volume 4, 2009), a publication based in Singapore. The article featured the Ashford Formula's use on existing concrete floors, and specifically focused on the work completed at the General Motors Service and Parts Operations (SPO) Plant in Drayton Plains, Michigan, USA.
The article focused on the facility's damaged concrete floors and the more than 50 years of wax build-up that began to chip off under the extreme weight of forklifts. The floors were plagued with "dangerous pits, ridges, and unevenness " causing forklifts to bounce as they carried heavy loads throughout the facility. Tire markings were also a significant concern as the light reflectivity of the space had been significantly compromised due to the floor's severe damage.

The Ashford Formula was applied on the floor of a new ProLogis warehouse in Katovice, Poland. The floor had been abused by the previous tenant and ProLogis wanted to bring the floor up to a respectable standard before acquiring the space.
The Ashford Formula Distributor in Poland, Probeton Sp. z o.o., approached ProLogis to expound on the virtues of an Ashford Formula treated floor. This led to the completion a 3,000 sqm refurbished floor along with 6,000 sqm of additional new flooring treated with the Ashford Formula.
Probeton Sp. z o.o. has consistently sought out the refurbishment market ever since they became an exclusive Ashford Formula Distributor in Poland. This has led to their great success over the last 5 years and this project is only a small representation of their classic work in their region.
