Timberman and Amorim Revestimentos join forces in the Danish flooring market

Recognised for the quality of its wood flooring, Timberman’s range of wooden floors comprises traditional parquet and plank flooring as well as more specialised products such as Marineplank, Wideplank and Slotsplank. Amorim Revestimentos, in turn, is known for the unique qualities of its premium Wicanders® cork flooring brand.

Wicanders® cork-based floors offer a wide range of attractive floating-loc and glue-down solutions for both domestic and commercial market segments. Due to the acoustic and thermal insulating layer of cork, they are much more comfortable and noiseless to walk on than other floors, providing a sound attenuating effect throughout the room.

As part of the joint venture, Amorim Revestimentos has acquired all of Timberman’s  Industrial Development (private equity)” shares and now has a 50% holding in the company.

According to Keld Jensen, CEO of Timberman: “Our aim is to further enhance our position as market leader in the Danish flooring market by consolidating the brand recognition of  Timberman’s wooden flooring and Wicanders® cork flooring. In the future, all products will therefore be sold and marketed under their existing brand names and their distribution will also be kept almost unchanged.”
