Energy Efficiency Solutions Provider LJUNGSTROM Settles Patent Infringement Suit Against Manufacturer in China


WELLSVILLE, New York, Nov. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire=KYODO JBN/ --

    LJUNGSTROM ( http://www.ljungstrom-global.com/ ) is determined to protect

its rights to its air preheater technologies. Some Chinese customers had made

complaints about poor quality products that were found to be copycat versions

of the LJUNGSTROM patented DNF(R) heating element. After identifying a

manufacturer in South China who had been supplying an inferior copycat product,

LJUNGSTROM filed a patent infringement suit in the Jinhua, Zhejiang court in

early 2016.

   A settlement agreement has been reached with the manufacturer to cease its

infringement of LJUNGSTROM's patent and to pay substantial damages for past

infringements. This proves once again that only LJUNGSTROM is in a position to

supply genuine DNF(R) heating elements, manufactured to the quality standards

and extended operational life required to meet the critical power needs of the

people of China.

intellectual property in China. "LJUNGSTROM is committed to providing proven

technology and established, high-quality products that other suppliers are

unable to match," said Hybern Huo, Managing Director of LUNGSTROM's Shanghai

Unit. "We are trying to help Chinese power plants to avoid premature failure,

downtime and operational issues that might be experienced with unlicensed and

poor quality imitations of our technology."
