CONCRETE CANVAS PATENT SUCCESS REPEATED AS PRELIMINARY INJUNCTION AGAINST EUROBENT/TILTEX™ UPHELD.
11 NOVEMBER 2019
In April 2018 a Polish court granted a preliminary injunction against Eurobent Sp.zo.o – the manufacturer of Tiltex™ (a cement/sand filled GCL product marketed as a GCCM*) – to refrain from infringement of Concrete Canvas Technology Ltd.’s patent PL/EP 2027319. The preliminary injunction has been final and binding since June 2018.
The court has again ruled** that the preliminary injunction is upheld and Eurobent Sp.z o.o. must not infringe Concrete Canvas Technology Ltd.’s patent PL/EP 2027319.
The fine for non-compliance remains amongst the highest on record set by a Polish court for a case of this type.
Concrete Canvas Ltd. wish to reiterate that they will seek to enforce their intellectual property rights where they have grounds to believe that they are being infringed by a manufacturer, distributor or otherwise.

Co-Directors of Concrete Canvas Ltd, Will and Pete, welcomed local MP Owen Smith to our site in Pontypridd today. Owen is the MP for Pontypridd. We hope to welcome him back soon.
Wales’ First Minister visited Concrete Canvas Ltd at their Pontypridd site last week, speaking to co-Directors Will Crawford and Peter Brewin about Welsh export statistics.
The First Minister also spoke to the Directors to get their take on how a ‘hard Brexit’ could effect company’s like CC, which rely heavily on exports.
Take a look at the short video shared on the First Minister’s Twitter page following his visit:

Welsh Secretary of State, Alun Cairns, this week discussed the importance of Welsh manufacturing for the British economy.
The MP addressed an audience at the annual Barclays and SPTS Technologies Ltd ‘Voice of Welsh Manufacturing’ event on Monday, outlining the Welsh Manufacturing sector’s strengths.
In his speech he singled out the success of Concrete Canvas Ltd, alongside the likes of Aston Martin and Toyota, and how the company is “revolutionising construction processes by manufacturing concrete on a roll”.
This comes ahead of a visit from Wales’ First Minister, Carwyn Jones, at Concrete Canvas’ Pontypridd site on Thursday.
CC has recently expanded, purchasing a new site in Pontyclun, which the company hopes to move to in early 2019.
