Flora Coatings was founded in 2014 in the Islands of Hawaii by the two mechanical engineers who were trained to develop new materials. Due to limited resources, both founders moved to Arizona and registered the company in the city of Phoenix. Flora Coatings has been incubated by the Center for Entrepreneurial Innovation (CEI), a state of the art facility that promotes and facilitates the growth of new companies. Besides providing necessary infrastructure, CEI provides, IP, legal, financial and business advices to Flora Coatings. While working together, both the founders have received several patents on their inventions.
