The new, bigger location is able to accommodate the company’s current as well as future employees and is fully equipped to fulfilL the needs of I4F’s customers and partners. The new premises are also home to a new lab where licensees and prospects can test their products using I4F’s technologies prior to large scale production.

More specifically, the company is searching for licensing managers for China as well as Vietnam and south east Asia. The company said it is also hiring more technical engineers, specialized in highly advanced flooring related technologies, including digital printing.

“With market leading technologies, a team of highly experienced people as well as bigger and better premises, we are in the best shape possible to support our customers and partners in China and south east Asia,” said John Rietveldt, I4F CEO. “Despite the challenging environment, our business is surging in the region and globally with volumes hitting a record level in Q2.”
