Hexatronic has learned of press release related to patent infringement

Hexatronic Group AB Jun 12, 2018

Hexatronic has today 12 June 2018 learned of a press release related to patent infringement issued by Emtelle UK Limited. According to the press release, the subject companies of the lawsuit are Hexatronic UK Ltd., Hexatronic Cable & Interconnect Systems AB, and Hexatronic AB. The lawsuit is said to relate to airblown fiber products of which Ribbonet ABF Ultra and Stingray are named. The company deems the possibilities of defending the company’s position in the anticipated matter as very good and will contest any potential claims.

Previously, Hexatronic has on two occasions been subject to lawsuits from Emtelle related to air-blown fiber products.

Hexatronic was during spring 2015 subject to a lawsuit from Emtelle Ltd. related to an alleged infringement of a Swedish patent related to air-blown fiber products. Negotiations in the Swedish Patent and Market Court were held in early September 2017 in which the court decided in Hexatronic’s favor. The court declared the patent invalid and thereby struck down Emtelle’s claim of patent infringement.

Hexatronic’s subsidiary Hexatronic New Zealand Ltd. was in July 2016 subject to a lawsuit regarding a New Zealand patent related to air-blown fiber. Hexatronic has contested the claim.
