Phil took a small break from the Industry and began back by rebuilding relationships and a new customer base. Once back he realized just how much the industry had changed in the short period of time during his absence. Amongst other things, being provided with a fantastic service and knowledge of products was what was going to help rebuild this very successful business.


After mucking around with single phase grinders and as Phil’s work load became greater it was crunch time. “Time is money”, were Phil’s words

“I need production and speed in three phase but on a tight budget” By this time several contracts had been won for several thousand meters of polishing, and single phase grinders just wouldn’t cut it.


“Justin Berry-Smith (Master Franchisee Victoria for Traxx CP) with his very well stocked mobile Traxx Shop on wheels, has the consumables required and at a very competitive price and delivered to site in a timely manner, saving me down time in getting the goods.”


“Justin suggested value for money you can’t go past the SC650 planetary 3 head, variable speed, left/right head rotation and best of all only requiring just a 3 Phase 20 Amp power source.”

 Phil inspected and researched the machine and others which made the decision very easy;

The Traxx SC650 was delivered the very next day to site to enable completion of approx 2000m2 of polished concrete at South Wharf DFO, then quickly followed up by another 400m2 at Moorabbin DFO Food court.


Since the purchase Phil has completed many demo jobs as well as full polishing jobs “using the amazing TraxxFloor system and adding the DE6000 separator, in tandem with the SC650 and SD6000 vacuum system it was all a god send with saving hours per shift in cleaning vacuums, and emptying bags".

ConcreteFX then appeared on the 2013 Melbourne series of “THE BLOCK SKY HIGH” supplying its TOP IT range for incorporation in the apartments of the twin contestants Bec and George, as well as Trixie and Johnno! “Judges were amazed at our polished concrete benchtop. Polished concrete is fast becoming a sought after addition to the modern and elegant home".

"With polished concrete the choices are almost endless.” ConcreteFX also provided its experience and expertise to form subfloors in preparation for alternative floor coverings.



“I’m very happy with the purchase and value for money of the Traxx SC650 and SD6000 Separator and would recommend this for any flooring contractor whether it is a small 50m2 job or a 4000m2 job.
