Unilin's IP business files court case against Halstead International Group


On March 16, 2018, Flooring Industries, Unilin's IP division, filed a court case against Tower IP Co., the Irish intellectual property company of Halstead International and Vertex, before the Landgericht in Düsseldorf, Germany.   

The case is based on alleged breaches by Tower IP Co of its 2013 agreement with Flooring Industries. Flooring Industries is of the opinion that Tower IP Co. breached several of its obligations, including non-reporting and non-payment of fees for Halstead International Group's world-wide imports and sales of products with I4F locking technology.  
Flooring Industries is convinced that products with I4F locking technologies fall under several of its patents, and is therefore demanding payment of all due contractual fees, increased with contractual penalties and interests.
