UK gas pressure controls manufacturer Gas Injection Worldwide Ltd. (GIWW) has acquired exclusive rights outside the United States and Japan to use, sublicense, and enforce all current owned by or licensed to gas-assisted injection equipment supplier 7S_GIWW1.jpgGain Technologies (Shelby Twp., MI). The agreement is one of a series of technology and equipment supply deals between the two companies.

“This will be good news for GIWW customers, eliminating uncertainty on the need for licenses from third parties,” explains Terry Pearson, chairman of GIWW Ltd. “Customers for GIWW gas pressure controllers will be offered licenses covering the full range of Gain patents or only covering the Jaroschek Patents at what are described as relatively low once-only license fees. Users of other gas controllers are offered patent-only licenses.” 7S_GIWW2.jpg

Jaroschek patents, invented by Christoph Jaroschek and owned by Ferromatik Milacron Desma GmbH, “predate any known alternative patents claiming similar plastic outflow methods,” according to Gain, which was granted sole rights to use, sublicense, and enforce the patents in May 2003.
