                 A brief history of Unilin

In 1960, several families from south-west Flanders who were active in the flax
industry began producing flax chipboards in Ooigem. They called the
company 'Unilin‘ short for ‘Union de Lin’.
In the 70s and 80s the company quickly expanded with the production of
melamine boards, laminate floors & roofing elements.
In 1988 the Quick-Step® brand was introduced.
The year 1997 is a historical milestone in the history of laminate floors. Quick-
Step® was the first manufacturer to market a glueless, integrated click
system: Uniclic. This revolutionary click system is patented worldwide.
In October 2005, the Unilin Group was acquired by Mohawk Industries Inc.
In 2007, a new product line, engineered wood, was integrated in the
Flooring division.
In 2009, Unilin Flooring acquired Spectrim, a distributor in UK, which
continued under the name Unilin Distribution Ltd.
