Established Company Shows Interest in Five Inventions

At the AAPEX 2017 tradeshow, United Patent Research (UPR) revisited a major tool manufacturer that has been in business over 100 years. When meeting with the Vice President of Sales and Marketing, UPR presented a handful of products that we felt would fit this company’s market niche perfectly. They are always looking for new specialty tools that would expand their current product line to stay ahead of their competition. At the show this tool company had expressed interest in 5 products: John M.’s (Manuel) Double Swivel Locking Ratchet Wrench, Eugene W.’s (Wageman) SAE/Metric Wrench, James W.’s (Ward) Hydraulic Mechanics Creeper, Lee S.’s (Simpson) Knee Dolly, and Matthew S.’s (Schroeder) DeHoser. UPR is in the process of getting Non-Disclosure Agreements in place so that we can start making presentations immediately.

Continuing Contacts With Major Company

Notes from AAPEX 2017: After meeting with a major North American manufacturer in November 2016, UPR is continuing to encourage this company to consider the merits of two products that were presented to them last year. This major manufacturer has revamped their entire new product development core and is looking to revisit ideas we had submitted previously. The two products that are still under review are: Joseph B.’s (Brunelle) Windshield Wiper Re-Blades, and David P.’s (Pender) Power Brush. UPR has traded emails with their New Product Development Coordinator. We hope to see some feedback from this major company in the very near future.

Meeting With Specialty Manufacturer

At the National Hardware Show, United Patent Research (UPR) met with a National Sales Manager for a manufacturer of specialty pouches and aprons. These innovative pouches and aprons are designed to be used in conjunction with the buckets that are typically used to carry tools from worksite to worksite.
