From the first ‘swiveler’ with pendle axles to the MANOOVR: the already long list of innovations at Nooteboom is still growing. Consequently the need to properly protect these clever inventions grows too. Obtaining a patent is an important way to protect intellectual property and to ensure that our customers can always expect top quality.
Just over ten years: that’s how long the juridical wrangling about the Pendle-X Euro low-loader with excavator trough that was developed by Nooteboom has lasted. Earlier this year the European Patent Office finally decided in Nooteboom’s favour: the combination of an excavator trough and pendle axles is unique and Nooteboom is the only party in Europe that can bring this product on the market.
