June 6, 2005
CLEARFIELD, UTAH -- Lifetime Products Inc., the worldwide leader in the folding table and chair market, announced today that it has entered into a confidential settlement agreement with Daniel Paul Chairs, a manufacturer of folding chairs.
Previously, Lifetime had notified Daniel Paul of their potential infringement on United States Patent No. 6,543,842 by selling a folding chair. In an effort to resolve the dispute, both parties enter into a confidential settlement agreement which includes the stipulation that Daniel Paul discontinue selling its folding chair.
Lifetime intends to continue its vigorous pursuit of all available remedies against manufacturers, distributors, and all other unauthorized infringers of Lifetime's valuable intellectual property assets. The law firm of Workman Nydegger is representing Lifetime.
In 1998, Lifetime introduced the first blow-molded polyethylene folding utility table to the market. They followed their success with the table by introducing a blow-molded polyethylene folding chair in 2000. Today, Lifetime is the world's largest manufacturer of blow-molded polyethylene folding tables and chairs and holds a portfolio of patents protecting these products.
