At Francis Flower we recover, reclaim and recycle mineral by-products from industry for the benefit of our customers and the environment. Fordacal and Flowdol are manufactured by Francis Flower, a family business established in 1953. Over time, the business has expanded from its original quarrying and lime production enterprise to provide a range of high quality powdered minerals, including Gypsol anhydrite binder for flowing screeds, limestone powders for concrete and asphalt filler, as well as GGBS for lower CO2 concrete. All the products produced by Francis Flower originate as by-products from industrial processes, reducing the need for mineral extraction and landfill. With bases across the UK, Francis Flower is a trusted partner for both its UK and international customer
