Välinge North America announced that the company moved into its new headquarters in Alpharetta, Georgia at the end of 2021. The company shared that the Välinge Flooring collection of hardened wood flooring was launched in the U.S. market in 2021 and the continued rollout of the product portfolio is set for 2022. The team is now turning its sights to commercial channel growth.
Välinge North America is also actively supporting U.S. importers and distributors selling flooring products featuring Välinge technologies in finding a perfect match in Välinge’s worldwide licensee base, taking into account particular needs and requirements.
Some of the current partners are Elias Wilf, Herregan, Greenhome, Spartan Surfaces, Stiller, and Reform. The actual Välinge Flooring hardened wood products are supplied from warehouses established in Dalton, Georgia and Oakland, California.
A total of eight people will work out of the new office covering finance, operations, marketing, and customer service. Business development managers as well as local sales personnel will also use the office as needed. During 2021, Välinge welcomed six new colleagues, and 2022 will be another year of expansion with more people expected to join throughout the year.
