Innovation Direct™ seeks update from Florida-based licensee of Clydesdales invention…
Good afternoon, Juan C. Blanco, Innovation Direct™’s Director of Product Licensing, checking back in with our latest report regarding a previously licensed invention. Earlier Thursday, Innovation Direct™ sent an e-mail to the president of a Florida-based manufacturer that had licensed a construction accessory from our roster, the Clydesdales, back in January 2005. We had been in touch with the company on several occasions after that point, and had even worked in conjunction with them to feature a sample of the item in the New Product Showcase of the National Hardware Show 2006, where a “one-sheet” with the manufacturer’s contact information had also been distributed.
However, with over a year and a half having elapsed since the last communication from the licensee, we decided that it would a prudent time to request an update. The product does have its own dedicated website, www.clydesdalesawhorse.com, where orders are accepted, so we do surmise that sales have been occurring. The inventor has worked in close partnership with the licensee since the onset, so he was also copied on today’s e-mail correspondence.
We certainly expect to receive a reply at some point in the near future and will update you when we do, here on the Innovation Direct™ Blog. Check back often!
