Turning your IP into a profit center
The Unilin Technologies sub-licensing program is designed to help companies commercialize their groundbreaking ideas and innovations. Companies can boost their profit margins by relying on our extensive expertise in intellectual property management and our world-wide IP licensing network.
Filing for IP rights, such as patents, trademarks and designs is a common way of protecting efforts spent in research and development. However, the investment by individual companies in such IP rights to protect their technology against competition is often inadvisably regarded as a pure loss.
Under its sublicensing program, Unilin Technologies opens up its IP expertise to third parties with the aim of creating return on their investment in research and development.
Unilin Technologies seeks to establish win-win arrangements with third parties, wherein the basic ideas are:
- You develop your technology
- You file for your IP-rights with or without Unilin's IP assistance
- Unilin Technologies markets and commercializes your technology
Unilin Technologies provides:
- Immediate access to a vast network of existing licensees
- A worldwide, active sales team in the relevant market
- More than 10 years of know-how in licensing, auditing and financial control
- More than 10 years of expertise in patent valuation and prosecution
Several technologies and patents owned by Berry-Alloc, Classen, Facadeclick, Construclick, Dal-tile, Gruppo Frati, Hülsta-Parador, Nox, Välinge, Vitec, Windmöller and US Floors are already offered by the Unilin licensing department.
