Betolar Plc: Betolar and JA-KO Betoni have signed 10-year Geoprime® license and supply agreements

Betolar Plc and JA-KO Betoni Oy have signed a license agreement for the low-carbon Geoprime® concept developed by Betolar. JA-KO Betoni acquires the right to utilize the Geoprime® materials technology solution and related continuous research and development and expert services in the manufacture of its concrete products. The agreement also includes the right to use the registered Betolar® and Geoprime® trademarks in its products manufactured in accordance with the concept. In addition, the parties have entered into a supply agreement for the chemicals used in the Geoprime® solution.

The term of the agreement is 10 years and it covers the right to use the Geoprime® concept in all concrete products produced by JA-KO Betoni. The first applications for the Geoprime® solution will be in dry cast concrete products such as various infrastructure products, pole foundations and electric car charging station stands.

The license fee paid by JA-KO Betoni is based on the volume of its Geoprime® products and a regular fixed license maintenance fee. The parties will not disclose the commercial value or terms of the license or supply agreements.

“This is Betolar’s ​​first commercial license agreement leading to the start of industrial production. The collaboration with JA-KO Betoni is a significant demonstration of the functionality and acceptability of the Geoprime® concept and materials solution developed by Betolar in the concrete industry. The agreement is a great step in the green revolution in the concrete industry and a response to the construction industry's need to bring low-carbon products to market,” says Matti Löppönen, CEO of Betolar.

“The licensing and supply agreement with Betolar now enables significant development and manufacture of low-carbon concrete products, which will give JA-KO Betoni a strong competitive advantage and new business opportunities. In February, we will start production of Geoprime®-products at our factory in Kokkola. This is a remarkable starting point for our company towards green, environmentally friendly construction,” says Jaakko Eloranta, CEO of JA-KO Betoni.
