Global concrete equipment manufacturer GOMACO has revealed that on March 1, the company was served papers for a lawsuit brought by Guntert & Zimmerman claiming patent infringement.
GOMACO has released a statement stating that the company believes this claim is baseless, and will vigorously defend the suit and its reputation.
The statement added, “We appreciate our customer support and want them, as well as future customers, to understand that this suit in no way impacts our ability to sell, ship and/or service any of the thirty plus different machine models we manufacture.
“GOMACO’s policy is to not comment publicly on a legal action. But with the timing of the lawsuit, being filed and served just days before ConExpo 2020 in Las Vegas, we felt a statement was necessary.”
