24. June 2015

Schweighofer Prize 2015 recognizes Swedish wood powder technology

Välinge won the prize due to its wood powder technology-based flooring concept Woodura®/Lindura®. According to Välinge, the powder perfectly fills up the natural openings of the wood and enhances the wood appearance and thereby eliminates the need for putty operations. 

Every second year, the Schweighofer Prize awards companies’ outstanding performances within the European forest based sector over an extended period of time with a total prize amount of €300.000. Innovative ideas, technologies, products or services that strengthen the competitiveness of the European forest based sector are taken into consideration. This is exactly what the Swedish company Välinge and licensee MeisterWerke accomplished this year. 

The award presentation took place in Vienna on 16 June 2015. The city hall of Vienna was filled with approximately 700 politicians, decision makers, company leaders and researches from the wood sector from all over the Europe. Stort grattis!
