Valinge Innovation said it has signed a global licensing agreement with Triangulo Pisos e Paineis Ltda, a Brazilian manufacturer of hardwood floors. The agreement, which is the first for the company in South America, covers the use of Valinge's patented locking system designed for quick, simple installation of hardwood flooring.

“After extensive research we decided that Välinge´s click system would be the best choice for our products. The partnership with Välinge will open new possibilities,” said Murilo Granemann de Souza, Triangulo's export manager, Triangulo.

“With existing partnerships in Europe, North America, Australia and Asia, Välinge has now with Triangulo also entered the South American market. We are very happy to announce this new co-operation," added Darko Pervan, president, Välinge Innovation.
