About Florex

Florex is a pioneering company that since its inception in 2009 has been focused on improving people's lives and contributing to environmental protection through continuous research and innovation, under the philosophy of development for sustainability with integrated environmental and quality management systems. Florex does a constant process of research, innovation, development and control that seeks to generate the least possible impact on the environment, especially water. The products protect the health of people and their manufacture and contribute to the sustainability of homes, organizations and the community.
