Novalis Innovative Flooring entered into an additional license agreement with Unilin’s licensing division by which its NovaCore product line will from now on also be licensed under the US Floors patent portfolio.
Novalis entered into a licensing arrangement with Unilin in early 2010, and was at that time one of Unilin’s first licensed partners for LVT flooring. This cooperation has since then been expanded by adding WPC flooring, Unifit folddown technologies, Windmöller patent protection and now also US Floors Coretec patent protection.
“We are very pleased with the cooperation with Unilin’s licensing division,” states John Wu, president and CEO of Novalis. “Since day 1, they have assisted us in developing the perfect locking for our clic LVT program, and in helping us to overcome patent issues with third parties. Novalis highly respects intellectual property and is taking the necessary measures to make sure that Novalis and its customers cannot be held accountable for potential patent claims. As soon as we were informed that Unilin’s licensing team was allowed to grant licenses under the US Floors patent portfolio, we contacted them and did the necessary to be protected under these additional patents.”
