BA Components has signed a licence agreement with panel manufacturer Unilin to take over production and sales of its Uniclic furniture technology.
Developed by Unilin, Uniclic allows various panels to click together without using any tools. The company said it made the choice to sign over the sales and production in order to “further focus on developing new technologies and improving existing product ranges”.
BA Components, a kitchen and bedroom doors and accessories manufacturer, will also take over the production and sales activities of ClicBox, a commercial range of components with Uniclic technology mainly used in kitchens.
It has invested in a new purpose-designed production facility in South Yorkshire, where it already has a manufacturing base.
Unilin sales and marketing director Jan Battheu said: “We are convinced that the ClicBox range is a perfect match with BA Components’ current activities and product offer, allowing us to concentrate more on our core business.”
At BA, operations director Kieran McCracken said: “We are excited by both the challenge and opportunity this offers and would like to thank Unilin for the manner in which the negotiations have been conducted. We are looking forward to further establishing the Uniclic for furniture products not only here in the UK, but throughout our global sales network.”
