Update: Innovation Direct™ receives long-awaited reply from Algiers-based company regarding 2 inventions…
Hello, Juan C. Blanco, Innovation Direct™’s Director of Product Licensing, back once again with an update on a situation we’d last reported about in a August 14th entry (http://innovationdirectonline.com/blog/?p=1213). Earlier Friday, Innovation Direct™ received a long-awaited reply from the principal of Algiers-based Industrie Hygenique Berkani, the manufacturer that served as the licensed the Multi-Pack Maxi, a feminine hygiene accessory, back in May 2006, and that also retained an advanced level of interest in another item from our roster in the same category for the last 18 months.
The e-mail communication today came after another attempt was recently made by the Innovation Direct™ representative that has been managing the situation to contact the company via e-mail. In Friday’s response, the company principal explained that his own personal health concerns had significantly slowed down the pace of his business operation to the extent that he has had to shut down his factory altogether for the time being. The gentleman also explained that he’d deemed the product that he was still considering too costly for production, and is therefore declining any further involvement with it.
We will update you on any progress the licensed Multi-Pack Maxi may make in the future with this company once business returns to normal. Check in often to the Innovation Direct™ Blog for the latest!
