Mon.Zon vs Layher

15 April 2008

Layher's Swedish subsidiary has lost a legal case against Swedish scaffold manufacturer Mon.Zon.

Layher had claimed to the Swedish Market Court that Mon.Zon advertising materials could have mislead readers that a Swedish type certificate existed for scaffolding that used a mixture of Layher and Mon.Zon parts.

The court's judgement – released just as SI was going to press – rejected the claim, saying that the advert would not mislead the specialist readership to which the advert was targeted, and awarded Mon.Zon SEK341000 (€36700) in legal costs.

A Layher spokesperson told SI that it was considering its options, although there is no opportunity to appeal in the Market Court.
