The Chinese flooring producer Jiangsu Beier Decoration Materials Co., Ltd – also known as BBL – has signed a license agreement with Välinge for the use of Liteback® sustainable core technology for thermoplastic flooring.
BBL has been a Välinge licensee since 2008 and today sells both laminate and thermoplastic flooring products with locking systems from Välinge. With the new license agreement in place, BBL will be to offer floor products with lower environmental impact from both production and transportation.
“The implementation of Liteback® takes us one step closer towards our sustainability goals. Furthermore, it enables us to develop a whole new range of greener products and thereby provide more attractive alternatives for the environmentally concerned customer,” says BBL Sales Manager Camilla Gong
A grooving unit used for the production of Liteback® has been delivered to BBL and the first products featuring the technology are scheduled to be released during the 1Q 2020.
