Welspun Expands into Flooring Products with Välinge Technology
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 branch, will launch the first of its four scheduled units of integrated SPC tile manufacturing facilities in 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 click flooring installation is easier, less time consuming and avoids the hassles associated with conventional tile-laying process. It is seamless and no grouting is required. The product has applications in both commercial and residential buildings and the tenants can even remove them while shifting to another location,” said Mukesh Savlani, president and CEO of Welspun Flooring.
Ulf Molén, director of sales & marketing, Välinge Innovation, added, “Välinge is very pleased to welcome Welspun Flooring as a new licensee and we are also looking forward to when Welspun will introduce our new lightweight technology, Liteback®, soon on the market.”
The first range of products from Welspun with Välinge technology is scheduled to be launched during the third quarter of 2019.
