NETZSCH successfully brings Action against Trademark Infringement


Modified forms of the NETZSCH trademarks Premier Mill and ZETA were being used by a Chinese competitor (Puhler Feinmahltechnik GmbH, Guangzhou). After Puhler also appeared on the American market with the NETZSCH brands, it was possible to successfully combat these trademark infringements. The US courts found Puhler’s rendering of our Premier Mill P logo and our brand name ZETA to be trademark infringements.

In their judgment, the US judges prohibited Puhler from using the trademarks in a trademark-infringing manner and awarded NETZSCH a sum of USD 4,000,000 as compensation for damages.
