As the company began its operations, it was able to slowly become a flooring contractor that provided high-performance floor surfaces to various local companies, facilities, and industries. In 2012, IIPI received its first major flooring contract from Nestle Philippines. The company is known as one of the largest food and beverage companies locally and internationally. It is important that they have flooring surfaces that can withstand the daily rigors of producing high-quality goods. It is also imperative that they have flooring that can keep their personnel and equipment safe.

By then, IIPI had transitioned to importing and applying resin flooring systems for a diverse set of clientele. This development was crucial for the company, as it gave them the best opportunity to contribute to a wide range of companies and facilities.
