Every month a new fos4X patent application
Munich, December 18, 2017 – Also in this year, fos4X has been able to further expand its patent portfolio with 12 new patent applications in Germany, once again demonstrating its innovative strength. As a result, the number of “living” patent applications has risen to over 90. Due to the international nature of the company, fos4X also holds patents granted in Canada, China, the USA and several European countries.
Practiced inventor culture as the driving force for patent applications
When creating new patent applications, fos4X draws on the wealth of ideas and creativity of its employees. All new registrations in 2017 are based on inventions filed by a total of 17 inventors.
“This means that every third colleague is directly involved in the patenting process. This practiced and promoted inventor culture is the basis for the successful development of a valuable patent portfolio.”
Says Manuel Mai, IP Manager at fos4X.
New patent applications from different areas
When registering for new patents, fos4X addresses the needs of the market and its customers. Essentially, three areas are covered:
- Patents on sensors
- Patents on applications for wind turbines
- Patents on proceedings
fos4X goes to great efforts to build up and maintain its valuable patent portfolio. Since its foundation in 2010, the protection of innovative solutions has played an important role for fos4X. The reasons are obvious: By registering patents, fos4X regularly presents itself as an innovative and progressive company. At the same time, forward-looking ideas can be protected from imitators.
