USFloors signs deal with Välinge on cork and wood flooring

February 03, 2012

Dalton based USFloors, a leading manufacturer of unique and sustainable flooring, has signed a global, non-exclusive, license agreement to use Välinge’s patented 2G technology for mechanical locking systems with Fold Down installation, on its Cork and wood flooring products. The Fold Down installation method is fast, easy and suitable for glue free installation as well as glue down or nail down installation methods.

USFloors is a partner with one of Välinge’s first licensees, Amorim, a leading cork producer in the world, who acquired a 25% ownership in USFloors in 2008. This partnership has allowed USFloors to work closely with Välinge and its technology for a long time.

“It is with great pleasure that we welcome another US manufacturer to use the Välinge technology. We have been working together for about a year with the Amorim products. This agreement expands our cooperation with US Floors and reinforces a welcome trend towards more flooring production with mechanical locking systems in North America,” said Per Nygren, EVP marketing, Välinge.

“We are excited to extend our relationship with Välinge. Our Natural Cork collection combines great styling with a great installation system. This agreement further prepares us to expand our US based production in a growing market for sustainable flooring enhanced with mechanical locking systems,” said Piet Dossche, CEO, USFloors.

Välinge is pleased to announce the new agreement with USFloors.
