Innovation Direct™ reaches out to Canadian manufacturer regarding Innovation Direct To Industry™, outdoor tool product…
Good morning, Juan C. Blanco, Innovation Direct™’s Director of Product Licensing, checking in with our first update on this President’s Day. Earlier Monday morning, an Innovation Direct™ representative sent an e-mail communication to the contact person for invention submissions at a Winnipeg, Manitoba-based manufacturer and marketer of all types of outdoor products regarding our Innovation Direct To Industry™ program. Additionally, our colleague sent along preliminary, non-confidential information on an outdoor tool product from the roster that he believed would be a potential fit for their product lines and that represented a good way to get the relationship between the companies started.
The manufacturer, which is a family-owned outfit that has been in business since 1959 as per their official website, boasts an extensive line of items typically used outdoors, including camping, hunting, and fishing accessories. In fact, the company came to the attention of our aforementioned colleague over the weekend when he saw their name on the packaging of an outdoor tool product within the same general category as the one he sent preliminary information about at a local outdoor products retailer. This prompted our co-worker to conduct further research on the company by visiting their website, where he was pleased to see that they seem to welcome invention submissions from external sources, such as inventors and their representatives.
We are hopeful that we will not only get positive feedback on the product idea we sent materials about, but about the prospect of the company becoming a part of our Innovation Direct To Industry™ program as well.
