Geo-Fix® Celebrates 25th Anniversary

2021 is a significant year for Geo-Fix® as the respected paving brand celebrates their 25th anniversary.

When Geo-Fix Original was first brought to market 25 years ago, the paving industry was a completely different landscape compared to today. With traditional cementitious jointing products causing huge problems for Local Authorities and contractors, it soon became clear that an alternative solution was required.

After consulting and listening to the needs of the entire paving industry, Geo-Fix® developed a new technology using sand polymers to create Geo-Fix® Original brush-in jointing compound – a truly original product that revolutionised traditional jointing methods.

Creating a new product is one thing, but Geo-Fix® knew how important it was to carry out extensive testing with the contractors who would be using the product to guarantee it was suitable and performed perfectly – and that is exactly what they did.

This extensive research, development and testing that took place 25 years ago has resulted in products that have maintained their integrity and are proven to stand the test of time.

During their 25-year history, Geo-Fix® have established a significant distribution network of independent builders merchants, up and down the country. In 2013, they enhanced their product offering to include Geo-Fix® All Weather jointing compound, a superior brush-in sand that can be used in all weathers, and now offer a selection of beautiful coloured sands to complement all designs and tastes.

In 2020, Geo-Fix® partnered with Instarmac Group plc, a British manufacturer with over 45 years’ experience manufacturing and servicing the construction industry, to become their nominated distribution supplier. . Geo-Fix® Original and All Weather is now sold in over 20 countries including Europe and Australia.

“I am so proud of Geo-Fix® and everything the brand has achieved over the last 25 years. We have always prided ourselves on being the market-leader of brush-in jointing compounds and we will work hard to continue achieving this. We are constantly innovating to meet the ever-changing needs of the paving market and are poised to move and adapt to meet evolving trends. We have built a fantastic reputation and I look forward to seeing how Geo-Fix® develops over the next 25 years.” John Andrews, Company Director.
