TRACKWAY® TRADEMARK PROTECTED
FAUN Trackway Limited (FAUN Trackway®), our parent company, has successfully settled a trademark dispute with Ashtead Plant Hire Company Limited (A-Plant) in the UK which recognises FAUN’s registered Trademark TRACKWAY®.
A-Plant filed an EUTM Application for "LIVE TRACKWAY" and were using the term TRACKWAY® on their website and publicity materials. FAUN Trackway® opposed the EUTM Application based on their earlier rights in the mark TRACKWAY®.
The parties have reached a mutually satisfactory and amicable settlement.
A-Plant have now withdrawn the EUTM Application for "LIVE TRACKWAY", and have ceased using the term TRACKWAY® on all their website and publicity materials. The full terms of the settlement are confidential.
We are pleased to have achieved this settlement, which is a positive for both parties and our respective customers, partners and industry. Removing the threat of opposition proceedings and litigation, we can now direct our full attention on our respective businesses.Chris Kendall, CEO of FAUN Trackway Limited.
