Slovakian furniture manufacturer SANAS a.s. has signed a license agreement with Välinge for the use of Threespine® click furniture technology. SANAS will thereby be able to increase the quality of its furniture and is now targeting new business opportunities.
As a base for future initiatives, we have summarized the main activities that happened during 2018. A new factory, a record number of new patents, more R&D activities than ever before, new licensees and so on. In other words, 2018 has been a great year.
Oak veneer is the most crucial raw material in the Woodura® production process developed and patented by Pervanovo’s subsidiary Välinge Innovation AB. The aim of the acquisition is to secure supply of sufficient quantities of cost-efficient high-quality veneer for the expanding production of flooring with Woodura surface.
Välinge has filed a lawsuit for patent infringement against the Belgian entity Oneflor Europe. The lawsuit, filed in the District Court of Mannheim in Germany, asserts unauthorized use of Välinge’s patented technology.
RenewMaterial (Jiangsu) Co., Ltd. has signed a license agreement with Välinge for the use of the 5G® locking system and Threespine®click furniture technology. The technologies will help RenewMaterial in its product diversification and strive for continuous sustainable growth.
Innovations4Flooring has initiated legal action against a Välinge licensee and valuable partner, Beauflor US LLC. This action was filed after Beauflor decided to use the innovative 5G-i system by Välinge for its Boardwalk product range. 5G-i is the strongest and best one-piece locking system on the market, and its performance is only exceeded by the premier 5G® two-piece fold down solution by Välinge.
Classen confirms--in a statement published on the company's website on May 29, 2018--that Välinge has the exclusive sub-licensing rights for the Classen fold-down patents listed in the agreement signed back in 2012.
