“It is an idea that will be used for a long time,” she said.
“And I think it will become a part of our everyday life.”
PVC flooring is a plastic-and-rubber material that is used in some homes, but is increasingly becoming an integral part of most modern homes, including many commercial buildings.
The company has seen growth of around 50 per cent in the last three years and has plans to double the workforce to 100 people by 2019.
It is hoped that the new technology will make it easier to find the right pvc supplier for a particular project.
“This is really about a new wave of innovation, where we can build products that we are confident in, and make them more sustainable,” Mr Gorman said.
He said the project was not an easy decision for the company to make.
“There is a big cost that we have to bear to get a better product,” he said.
“I have seen it come from people who were working for years in the supply chain, who were doing this for a lot of years and were getting quality products.”
The Government has announced plans to increase the number of pvc supply chains and support new technologies in the industry, including by creating an Innovation Hub to support new and emerging businesses.
Mr Gorman is keen to see the project become a reality.
“We are not going to stop until we have the right supplier, we are not taking this lightly,” he told ABC Radio Perth.
“So I would like to see a company that can deliver that product in the timeframe that we need it.”
