Solid hardwood portable floors again prove to perform.
The final matches were held in FIBA Eurobasket 2017 in Istanbul, Turkey and Junckers signed a partnership agreement with FIBA, the International Basketball Federation, to serve as Official Technical Supplier of FIBA EuroBasket 2017. As a leading manufacturer of solid hardwood sports flooring, Junckers supplied custom made, specially designed portable solid hardwood courts for the five venues that hosted the biggest basketball competition in Europe.
Previously Junckers has also teamed up with FIBA to provide sports flooring for EuroBasket 2009 and for the Olympic Basketball Tournament at the 2004 Athens Games. The agreement came after FIBA issued a Request of Proposal to all FIBA Venue & Equipment Centre partners in the wood flooring category.
CARSTEN CHABERT, CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER OF JUNCKERS SAID:
“As a long-standing FIBA Equipment & Venue Centre Partner, we are truly proud to be chosen as the Official Technical Supplier to the prestigious and successful FIBA EuroBasket 2017. This agreement further anchors the relation between us and supports our strategy to maintain our position as the leading sports flooring supplier on a worldwide scale.”

“We are very pleased to welcome Junckers as Official Technical Supplier of FIBA EuroBakset 2017. Thanks to its unique expertise, Junckers will deliver the participating teams with first class courts for the competition which will feature a new and inspiring brand identity across all the venues.”
With seven subsidiaries and a network of agents and distributors, Junckers is represented in more than 50 countries worldwide, including the four that will host FIBA EuroBasket 2017 – Finland, Israel, Romania and Turkey.
