Välinge Innovation held a grand opening ceremony of their support centre at Homag China Golden Field in Kunshan. A natural result of the growth in the region has been to increase Välinge’s local presence and support, to provide faster and more timely technical support and services to the Chinese and surrounding markets.
“Since Välinge Shanghai Representative Office was established in 2011, more than 150 patent license agreements have been signed in China. China’s furniture and flooring industries have created more business opportunities and value. The establishment of Kunshan Technical Support Centre will further promote our company’s business support and development in China and surrounding areas,” Mr. Niclas Håkansson, CEO of Välinge, said in his welcome speech.
The event also contained a guided tour of the support centre, including a demonstration of the production process and assembly of Threespine®. The guests witnessed furniture featuring Threespine® being produced in both a double-end tenoner and a CNC machine. In addition, a production demonstration of Liteback® technology was also carried out on site.
