Indian conglomerate Welspun has signed a license agreement with Välinge Innovation for the use of locking technologies 5G®, 5G-i™ and 2G™ as well as Liteback® core technology. The technology implementation will enable high-quality lightweight SPC flooring with state-of-the-art locking systems, as the company says in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
A year ago, Welspun announced that its carpet business started a new chapter of growth by adding flooring solutions to its current portfolio of home textile products. Welspun Flooring, the Welspun Group's newest brainchild, will launch the first of its four scheduled units of integrated SPC tile manufacturing facilities in this July. Welspun plans for an extensive volume, starting with 10 million sq. meters and successively increasing. Products will be sold locally, as well as exported.
Welspun Flooring will produce SPC flooring using the Välinge locking systems 2G™ and 5G®, thereby enabling fast and easy installation of its flooring products. Apart from launching the click flooring technology, Welspun is also planning as a next step to provide a 20% lighter product with the patented Liteback® core technology from Välinge.
The first range of products from Welspun with Välinge technology is scheduled to be launched during the 3Q 2019.
