HomeNewsVälinge adds new Liteback licensee

LitebackViken, Sweden—Välinge Innovation has chosen Jiangsu Success Wood Products—better known as Pridon—as a global non-exclusive licensee for the use of both Liteback and Välinge’s 5G locking systems, including 5G-i Push Down and 5G Fold Down.

The company’s Liteback technology inserts milled grooves into the floor’s core, designed to create a lighter product and allowing 20% of raw materials to be reused in the production process, according to Välinge. The company also said the weight and sustainability savings cause a ripple effect for the supply chain, aiming to optimize the number of transportations, freight costs, required storage space and delivery and installation efficiency.

“Välinge’s 5G floor locking is widely regarded as the best of the best and with Liteback they’ve taken that innovation and applied it to the floor’s core,” said Roger Wu, director, export department, Jiangsu Success Wood Products. “What’s amazing with Liteback is the domino effect it creates in production and distribution—it’s a simple weight-saving production process that offers real-world savings in material and transportation costs that are especially appreciated during these uncertain times.”

Jiangsu Success Wood Products join the growing number of Liteback licensees including Welspun in India, Kira Flooring in Egypt and Zhejiang Tianzhen Technology (TZ), BBL and Changzhou Kingfisher in China.

“We’re really happy with the direction Liteback is taking,” said Per Josefsson, director, Plastic Floor Technology, Välinge Innovation. “We’re working closely with all our partners, those that have started production and others who are currently developing their Liteback products. The future is bright and light.”
