Joint Venture Established by Formica,
Schock

Warren, NJ Formica Corp. and the major German manufacturer
Schock Holding GmbH have established a joint-venture company that
will market Schock-brand solid surface products and technology to
the U.S. kitchen/bath and surfacing materials industries, the two
companies announced.

Announcement of the joint venture was made in February by
Formica Corp. and Schock officials, who said the new company, INOVA
Joint Venture, will be based at the Formica Corp. Solid Surfacing
headquarters in Odenton, MD.

“We are excited about our new business relationship with
Schock,” said Jean-Pierre Clement, president of Solid Surfacing for
Formica Corp.

Formica Corp., the laminate manufacturer whose headquarters are
located here and in Cincinnati, currently produces the Surell line
of solid surfacing material, as well as the Fountainhead line
formerly owned by Nevamar.

Schock’s extensive product line includes “Cristalite,” an
engineered compound consisting largely of quartz and used in the
production of countertops and kitchen and bar sinks. The
privately-held company also manufactures kitchen faucets, “Acrylux”
edge moldings, and accessories such as sink and waste disposer
strainers.
