Viken, Sweden—Välinge Innovation will add further capacity for development and production of its powder-based flooring concepts. The new investment includes additional 4,000 square meters to the current R&D center as well as a new production line.

Välinge’s flooring concepts with the surface technologies Nadura and Woodura combine high impact and wear resistance with new design possibilities. The demand for these floors around the world has steadily increased. As a result, Välinge has decided to invest in additional production capacity.

The new production line is scheduled to open during the first quarter of 2017 and will include equipment for wood surface treatment and also digital printing to maximize flexibility and facilitate development of new products.

“We want to help our present and potential customers introduce these exciting products to the market before eventually fully taking over the production themselves,” said Niclas Håkansson, Välinge’s CEO.
