Transtex LLC and Transtex Composite Inc. File Patent Infringement Lawsuit Against WABCO Holdings Inc. and Laydon Composites Ltd.

LEBANON, INJuly 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ – Transtex LLC and Transtex Composite Inc. (together “Transtex”) announced today that it has filed a patent infringement lawsuit against WABCO Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ:  WBC) and Laydon Composites Ltd. in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, Marshall Division on Friday, June 30, 2017.

In the lawsuit, Transtex asserts that WABCO Holdings Inc. and Laydon Composites Ltd. infringe eight of Transtex’s patents by manufacturing and selling infringing trailer skirts under the trade name TrailerSkirt™ (Models TS225, TS248 and TS259). The patents-in-suit are listed below and concern Transtex’s aerodynamic solutions and methods for designing and manufacturing trailer side skirts: United States Patent Numbers – 7,748,772, 7,887,120, 7,942,467, 7,942,469, 7,942,471, 8,292,351, 8,449,017, and 8,678,474.

“At Transtex, we stand behind our products,” said Mathieu Boivin, CEO and President of Transtex. “We invest heavily in research and development to ensure our customers continue to receive the most innovative product offerings.”

In December 2012, Transtex favorably settled a declaratory judgment action for patent infringement with competitor Ridge Corporation, which manufactures and sells side skirts under the name “Green Wing”. That action was Case No. 2:11-cv-00840 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio, Eastern Division.

“Just as we have done in the past with other competitors,” Boivin said, “we will continue to take proactive measures to protect our brand and intellectual property.”
