Dallas—U.S. Customs officials have seized and destroyed containers of laminate flooring that are using Unilin’s patented click technology without authorization. Recently, multiple containers of laminate flooring manufactured by Changzhou Century Wind were seized and destroyed.

In 2007, Unilin obtained a General Exclusion Order from the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) stating that products utilizing Unilin’s click patent portfolio without authorization would be blocked from entry into the U.S., and in certain circumstances seized and destroyed.
