The story so far
IOBAC was started when the founders, who owned one of the largest UK largest flooring contractors thought “there must be a better way”, and IOBAC ltd was set up.
IOBAC started with a patented solution joint with 3M on rapid setting polyaspartic magnetically receptive underlayment to a magnetic floor tile supplied by Karndean.
We received investment in 2016 and have built out a large range of technologies since 2017 including 4 new patents.
In January 2019 we signed an exclusive agreement with Unilin IP (flooring industries) to commercialise the IP. A further 2 patents were filed in 2019 which were on electrostatic dissipative (ESD) and heated flooring.
The IOBAC way
- Innovation through collaboration
- Challenging industry to think differently about flooring – “a floor is not just a floor”
- Better business outcomes using IOBAC technologies to make floors work harder
- Tangible business results – not just innovation for the sake of it
