Home News Välinge adds Windmöller as licensee

Viken, Sweden — Välinge and Windmöller have signed a global license agreement that gives the German producer the right to produce and sell products using the Välinge patent protected locking system for its resilient products with a glueless click system.

This agreement was preceded by a settlement between Välinge and Windmöller related to the angling system used on the Wineo resilient products with mechanical locking. It does not refer to other features of luxury vinyl tiles (LVT) with click system that have also been developed and protected by Windmöller.

“Välinge and Windmöller see this agreement as a first step to a long term partnership and cooperation,” said Per Nygren, executive vice president marketing at Välinge. “Windmöller is an innovative company who has been a pioneer in glueless LVT and has played an important role in the development and initial commercialization of this new flooring category.”

Välinge’s 5G fold down installation has had a major impact since being introduced. More than 7.5 billion square feet equipped with 5G/fold down systems have been sold worldwide.
