Comment | More

Graco Inc. has reached a successful settlement in its patent and trademark infringement suit brought against Hong Kong-based Techtronic Industries Co. Ltd. (“TTI”) and TTI’s U.S.-based affiliates, the company announced Monday (Oct.11).

Graco had brought suit in U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota, alleging that TTI’s RAP200 Paint Station Tool sold under the Ryobi brand name infringed Graco’s U.S. Patent No. 6,702,198 and federally registered BLUE trademark. Terms of the settlement were not disclosed.  

“Graco is committed to innovation, and to the protection of its intellectual property rights,” said Dale D. Johnson, Graco’s Vice President and General Manager, Contractor Equipment Division.  “We are pleased to have resolved this dispute on agreeable terms.”  

Graco Inc., based in Minneapolis, supplies technology and expertise for the management of fluids in both industrial and commercial applications.  Its equipment and systems are used in the manufacturing, processing, and construction and maintenance industries.
