MARCH 31, 2023
GPAINNOVA, a leading innovator business group in the metal surface finishing industry, announces that on March 29th, 2023 its affiliate DryLyte, S.L., filed a complaint before the Regional Court of Düsseldorf, in Germany, against a competitor for infringement of its European Patent EP 3 372 711 B1. The patent relates to a method for smoothing and polishing metals via ion transport by means of free solid bodies. This technology is implemented in several of GPAINNOVA’s products. This decisive step has been taken to safeguard the interests of the company, its investors, partners, employees, distributors, and inventors.
GPAINNOVA has always been committed to fostering a culture of creativity and ingenuity while respecting the intellectual property of others. Throughout its history, GPAINNOVA has actively sought to establish collaborative partnerships within the industry, aiming for innovative solutions. The company remains dedicated to these principles and will continue to engage in productive collaborations with partners who share its commitment to ethical business practices.
Efforts to reach an out-of-court solution with the competitor failed since it disputed the infringement allegation. DryLyte, S.L., thus, felt impelled to seek legal clarification regarding the asserted infringement of its own intellectual property. GPAINNOVA is confident in a favorable outcome of these proceedings aiming to preserve its interests and uphold the values that have driven its success.
Pau Sarsanedas, GPAINNOVA’s CEO and President, commented: “This action is essential for the protection of our company’s valuable assets and the hard work of our team. Our goal remains to develop cutting-edge, sustainable and environmentally friendly solutions, and we believe that respecting intellectual property rights is crucial to fostering a healthy and competitive environment for innovation”.
As the legal proceedings commence, GPAINNOVA will continue to focus on its core mission of developing groundbreaking products and services. The company remains confident in its ability to overcome this challenge and emerge stronger, better positioned to serve its customers, partners, and stakeholders.
