Japan—UNY-Group, an importer and producer of flooring products for the European market with a sales focus in the Netherlands, UK and Germany, is investing in a new production facility to better serve the European market.

In the process of producing flooring, UNY-Group’s choice of locking system was an easy one, according to Umran Yigiter, owner of UNY-Group. “We wanted a locking system that is easy, fast and strong for the customer and with a world class service and R&D facility for us as a developing company. We found all of what we were looking for in Välinge and in their 2G Angling, 5G-i Push Down and 5G Fold Down. We have been in the flooring industry for a long time, but we are new to the production scene and we very much appreciate Välinge’s support and knowledge during the start-up period.”

Andreas Nilsson, key account manager at Välinge, added, “It is rare that a company in Europe builds a production plant from scratch, and it has been our pleasure to accompany UNY-Group on this journey.”

Production is due to start in Q1 2021, and the capacity is 8.5 million square meters of SPC and LVT.
