Välinge Innovation is an R&D and IP company in the flooring and furniture industries. Founded in 1993, we pioneered the concept of glueless click floorings and changed the way people install and use floorings. Our worldwide-patented technology introduced a fast and easy way of installing floorboards mechanically, without using glue.
Today, our technology base covers all fields related to floating flooring but also to other applications such as furniture and surfaces. Several new companies have been founded to specialize on customer support as well as different types of R&D and IP activities.
Our patent portfolio is one of the most comprehensive in the flooring industry. It comprises more than 1,300 granted patents and a global license base of over 170 licensees. All R&D activities take place at our facility in Viken which is considered to be the world's most advanced R&D centre related to laminate, wood and wood-powder based flooring technology.
