Prestil wins a Court’s case against Locrete Holdings Ltd
A few months ago the company Locrete Holdings Ltd., based in Kuwait, forced us to go into pre-trial proceedings on the basis of the European patent no. EP 1196669 B1, which regards the production of a half-round prestressed concrete post having characteristics identical to the concrete post we manufacture.
Prestil produces this kind of post since 1988. To the Court of Trieste we have therefore submitted one of our advertisings in the VIGNEVINI magazine, No. 1-2 , year-XX, of 1993, which proves that, already at that time, we were manufacturing this product.
The action brought by Locrete Holdings Ltd against us was rejected by order of the Trieste Court dated 09.05.2012, since the European Patent of Locrete Holdings Ltd has been deposited in the period after the time of conception and manufacturing of our half-round prestressed concrete post.
Therefore, since we came out victorious in this incident, which was rather strange and unespected to say the least, we feel even more satisfied by seeing that all our efforts and innovation investments made so far are paying back.
May we also take this occasion to remind that Prestil is able to provide you, anywhere in the world, with all tools and technology necessary for the manufacturing of this type of post, which is a perfect solution for vineyards, orchards, fencing and building industry.
