An initial profileograph survey of the existing floor by CoGri staff identified areas that did not meet the DIN18202 standard required for the new reel-handling system to work properly, and these were rectified as required following removal of the existing concrete paint.
CoGri also repaired 300 metres of floor joints, using high-quality epoxy mortar to re-build the joints, before re-cutting them, filling them to the full depth with semi-rigid sealant and grinding them flat to produce a completely even surface.
Most of the project was completed over eight week-ends, with CoGri staff working from early each morning until mid-afternoon so the printing schedules were not interrupted.
As well as recording the fastest time in the heats at 53.35 seconds, the 22-strong team from CoGri finished third in the final, completing the 250-metre race in 55.26 seconds.
A proportion of the money went to the chosen charities of the race organisers, Huddersfield and Wakefield Chantry Rotary Clubs - leaving CoGri with PS1,041.28 for Prostate Cancer UK.
CoGri marketing manager Susan Smith said te firm had chosen Prostate Cancer UK because previous fundraising by employees had focused mainly on charities supporting issues affecting women.
Lynn Dare, financial director at CoGri Group, said: "The whole atmosphere was brilliant.
CoGri Group, which provides industrial flooring, is still accepting donations to swell the charity fund further.
Just 30 of the sacks protected pounds 360,000 worth of equipment belonging to warehouse floor-grinding company the CoGri Group as flood water poured down into their premises in Dean House on North Road.
CoGri was able to keep going yesterday, in contrast to last June, when sandbags couldn't prevent flood water getting into the site.
