Correction to notice regarding use of Nooteboom patent by Faymonville

October 2017

Recently it has been reported incorrectly in several publications that owing to their patent until 2025 Nooteboom is the sole party allowed to produce and market the combination of a deep excavator trough with pendle axles.

After the ruling of the European Patent Office in 2015 which granted the patent to Nooteboom, Nooteboom has entered into a constructive dialogue with the company Faymonville regarding the use of this patent by Faymonville. For both parties this led to a satisfactory solution which gives Faymonville the right to produce and market trailers that feature the combination of a deep excavator trough with pendle axles. For this Faymonville has paid Nooteboom an appropriate remuneration.

This outcome is in accordance with the vision of both Nooteboom and Faymonville where it concerns the importance and application of patents. Both companies invest heavily in innovation and share the opinion that patents are crucial to enable them to continue to invest in renewal. That’s why Nooteboom is open to make their patented technology available to others too. This will also advance the transport sector as a whole.

Nooteboom and Faymonville regret the perception that has been created after the recent incorrect reports in the various media. Nooteboom would like to make it clear that Faymonville also has the right to produce and market trailers that feature the combination of a deep excavator trough with pendle axles.
