Hurst Green Plastics Chairman, Stephen Clarke, and Managing Director, Tommy Sharples, were summoned to the European Patent Office at The Hague in The Netherlands, together with Expert Patent Attorney, Mr Nick Manley to contest a new Patent Application for another unique Product Invention
After 4 hours of hotly contested debate with the EPO, Hurst Green Plastics were finally granted a new Patent which will protect the new product throughout Europe for 20 years!
Tommy said, “It was a very tough negotiation at the hearing and a very expensive process, but providing our company with this type of protection is worth every penny! A huge thanks to Nick for his expertise in handling the case so professionally on our behalf.”
The new Patent adds huge value to Hurst Green’s growing portfolio of Worldwide Patents for their unique, and innovative storage systems and solutions.
Hurst Green Plastics Ltd would like to thank Nicholas Manley and his team at W.P. Thompson Patent Attorneys of Liverpool.
