Cambria Company LLC and Cosentino Group, both leading producers of quartz surfaces, announced that they settled a patent infringement lawsuit filed by Cambria.
In September 2020, Cambria filed a patent infringement lawsuit seeking damages and an injunction to stop the sale of products infringing Cambria´s patented technology with regard to quartz surfacing products with veins. Through litigation, Cambria has determined that Cosentino’s infringement of its patents, if any, was unintentional.
Although no specific terms were available on the settlement, a news release by Cambria noted that it had been “fully compensated by Cosentino.” As part of the confidential settlement, both parties agree that they will maintain and respect their respective intellectual property rights.
Both industry leaders reinforced their commitment to continue to defend their technology and highlight the importance of fighting against unfair practices in the market.
Cambria CEO and President Marty Davis explained, “We have always had high regard for and good relations with the Cosentino company and the Cosentino family; we are most pleased to reach this settlement agreement.”
