At the world's largest flooring trade show Domotex 2014 in Hannover, Bergo Flooring got enormous attention to their
new products in the ECO series – flooring made of100% recycled materials.
Among a total of 1350 exhibitors, 60 companies where chosen in the competition "fair's most innovative
product." The jury consisted of the award winning industrial designer Stefan Diez, director of the world-leading
flooring wholesaler Copa eG - Manfred Birkenstock, founder Brandherm + Krumrey Achitects - Susanne Brandherm,
chief editor of Boden Wand Decke - Stefan Heinze , specialist editor of Schoener Wohnen - Kirstin Ollech and

Style Park, a leading international platform for architecture and design, arranged 5 guided tours with visits to
the selected companies. More than 100 journalists and architects visited the Bergo Flooring booth and were told
about the latest development for the company and its products.
Bergo Flooring finally became one of the 15 winners in the flooring category and the jury's favorite!
“Another pretty amazing thing is the synthetic surfacing by Bergo Flooring that can be used as tennis flooring.
It’s really pretty cool.” My favorite is Bergo ECO Tennis from Bergo Flooring, says Stefan Diez, chairman of the jury.
" We have worked extremely hard to become the most ECO - friendly manufacturer of multi-functional floor tiles.
One challenge was to develop a 100% recycled material which fulfilled our strict requirements for quality and not
least continuity. We succeeded and can now offer our ECO series, which actually contributes to a reduction in mountains
of waste. It is enormously stimulating and enjoyable that we can keep up with the major flooring manufacturers"
says Eric Anderzon, CEO and partner of Bergo Flooring AB.
