Välinge Innovation AB and Barlinek S.A. have signed a license on the 5G-S side push technology for Barlinek's wood products. At the end of last year Barlinek installed new equipment for 5G-S production in its factory in Barlinek, Poland, to meet the market demand of fold down technology. The product was introduced in the beginning of this year at Domotex Hanover.

"We continue to see more and more producers introduce Välinge´s 5G fold down technology. The 5G-S technology has proven to perform excellent in the market and we are pleased to also see Barlinek - the biggest parquet producer in Europe - in that group of companies," said Per Nygren, Executive Vice President, Välinge Innovation.

"Barlinek introduces the new 5GS floorboard joint, so that the floor can be laid by as much as 25% faster without any special tools," added Marek Janke, Commercial Director Barlinek S.A.
