Mission into action
With creativity as the engine and innovation as the driving force, Unilin Panels make a significant contribution to the group strategy every day, which can be summed up in their corporate slogan: For Smart Living.
From ideas to customer-oriented solutions
With a far-reaching vertical integration for wood, Unilin Panels oversees the entire production process, from the tree to the finished panel, from ideas to customer-oriented solutions. Considerable attention is given to ecology, design, technology, safety and quality as well as ensuring the daily commitment of their employees.
The story so far
The company was set up in 1960 under the name Union de Lin, and began producing chipboard, melamine panels, laminate floors and roofing products about ten years later. In 1988 they launched Quick-Step, the revolutionary laminate floor with UNICLIC-technology. Unilin merged with Mohawk Industries Inc. in 2005 and the integration of Unilin Panels and SpanoGroup took place in 2013: a high-profile fusion of two local giants with maximum commitment to increasing efficiency, sharing know-how and complementing skills.
At the world’s doorstep
Today Unilin Panels has a well-developed network of sales and production sites in Belgium and France responsible for worldwide market coverage. All the units are managed from their headquarters in Oostrozebeke, Belgium.
Multiple sites are responsible for the production and finishing of melamine and chipboard products and the production of green energy and glues.
