We view the partnership with Xinova as essential to the growth of our company. We think what they can bring to material science and other enhancements to our technology and deliverables is going to be just fantastic.
— Rick Osterhout, Executive VP, SLI
To support the broader implementation of their modular construction innovation, CollinsWoerman/SLI established a Joint Venture with Xinova called, Innovative Building Technologies (IBT). The JV protects, develops, and markets the component-based building system, along with emergent innovations related to it. The JV leverages combined areas of expertise to further develop and strengthen their IP portfolio with inventions related to the core “kit-of-parts” technology and commercialize the inventions for global markets.
Arlan Collins and Mark Woerman founded Sustainable Living Innovations LLC (SLI) in 2008 to construct buildings more quickly and sustainably, and to provide higher quality housing. Their team developed a revolutionary system that utilizes a kit of prefabricated components to improve building quality, reduce maintenance, and enable rapid completion of eco-smart living spaces. They partnered with Xinova to connect their building technology to global markets and protect their IP.
Going forward in strategic collaboration, CollinsWoerman/SLI will continue to expand the use of their technologies in North America while Xinova pursues growth in key international markets such as China, Japan, and Viet Nam. Together, the companies will continue their pursuit of complementary innovations to make global multi-unit housing construction more efficient, affordable, and sustainable.
