Tensar’s actions filed in Canadian court
In a letter dated Oct. 21, 2014, and titled “Unproven Allegations,” Enviro-Pro Geosynthetics Ltd. responded to a patent infringement lawsuit filed by Tensar International vs. Enviro-Pro.
The letter from Jeff Prodahl, Enviro-Pro’s vice president of sales & marketing, stated: “The lawsuit cited in this article contains unproven allegations [that] are being vigorously defended. Enviro-Pro supports the concept of patent and intellectual property protection and relies on this protection itself for its proprietary intellectual property. However, Enviro-Pro’s Tri-Grid product is not an imitation nor does it infringe Tensar’s patents.”
Tensar’s press release dated Oct.7, 2014, was titled “Tensar takes legal action against Enviro-Pro Geosynthetics Ltd. for infringement of TriAx® GeoGrid patent.”
Prodahl’s Oct. 21 letter opened: “We are writing in response to Tensar International’s press release dated Oct.7 2014.” The letter closed with: “Enviro-Pro’s Tri-Grid product is subjected to rigorous third party testing and is proven to meet and exceed our customer’s expectations.”
Atlanta-based Tensar filed the lawsuit in Canada. Enviro-Pro is based in suburban Edmonton, AB, Canada.
