Our company

Unilin Technologies is the intellectual property unit within the Unilin Group that grants licenses with regard to own and 3rd party patent rights. Today, we manage more than 3000 patents in over 450 patent families.

We commercialize intellectual property rights by granting licenses to different industries. Our licensees gain access to the newest product novelties,  disruptive manufacturing processes and revolutionary product construction methodologies. These technologies will substantially shorten the product development cycles and streamline logistics, while improving the quality of all kinds of products, allowing our licensees to gain market share and jump ahead of competition.

We also offer an established sub-licensing program designed to help companies commercialize their own ideas. We facilitate access to innovative technologies by expanding our licensing business model and maximizing the pace of novelties for new industries. Companies can boost their profit margins by relying on our extensive expertise in intellectual property management and our world-wide IP and know-how licensing network for promoting groundbreaking ideas and unique technologies.

Our values

PASSION

We all share the same passion for our work and for our company. We have a passion to design the most attractive products for our customers, create the best quality and offer the best service.

We get our energy from innovating, installing and maintaining new technology and through continuous optimization of our processes and policies. We challenge the status quo and do more with less.

ENTREPRENEURSHIP

Working for UNILIN is like working for your own firm. Together we make up a team of entrepreneurs driven by the will to be successful. Working together is our motto. Everyone helps everyone.

Our holistic view on the business enables us to see the effect of our actions across the organization. We maintain responsibility when delegating,  stimulate initiative and debate with respect for everyone’s contribution.

We take reasonable, well-thought-out risks and adapt to changing conditions. Our decisions prioritize the long term, anticipating the future. Work ethic and entrepreneurial spirit are in our genes: anything is possible as long as we work hard according to a smart plan and invest in people and technology in a well-considered way.

EXCELLENCE

We are convinced that we can make every challenge a success. With our heart and soul, we strive for perfection. We promote best practices. No matter what we do and where we do it, only the best is good enough. We constantly question ourselves and challenge why processes exist and discuss alternatives.

Our ultimate goal is to achieve excellence in everything we do. We want to have the best organization and want to be the best in every market where we are active. Speed of execution, aggressive cost controls and discipline are of fundamental importance.

RESPECT

Respect starts with caring: we aim to be a zero-harm company with a positive culture where everyone looks out for each other and safety is an innate part of our activities.

We are also aware of the impact we have on the environment and society at large and we always strive to strike the perfect balance between economic, social and ecological considerations. We respect all our stakeholders (staff, customers, suppliers, ...) taking into account the values and convictions of various cultures.
