Dalton—USFloors received a Notice of Allowance for its COREtec patent application, which was filed on Oct. 22, 2012.
The patent will give USFloors patent protection for its popular COREtec LVT collection including COREtec Plus, COREtec Plus XL, COREtec Plus HD, COREtec One, SMARTCORE, Stratum, Stratum XL, INNOVA, Fusion Hybrid Floors, Vision Hybrid Floors as well as any future products developed and sold under the protection of its patent.
The exclusive Beaulieu of America COREtec One by Bliss collection, introduced early this year and extensively featured by the company during The International Surface Event (TISE) 2015 in Las Vegas, will also fall within the scope of USFloors’ Intellectual Property (IP) rights and protection.
“I am extremely excited with the Notice of Allowance we received today from the USPTO [U.S. Patent and Trademark Office], as it validates the innovation and development we have brought to the flooring industry with our COREtec LVT collection,” said Piet Dossche, president and CEO. “This product has been in development since early 2010 and we have invested a lot of time and money to bring this new flooring product to the market and to have our patent application filed and successfully allowed.”
