Husqvarna Group is taking legal action against Positec Germany GmbH claiming Positec's Worx robotic mower infringes two of Husqvarna's patents for robotic mower technology.
Hans Linnarson, CEO of Husqvarna Group, says, “We have had tremendous success with the Automower robotic mower, and welcome that other manufacturers help us to grow this market. However, all manufacturers must do their own engineering work and not just copy existing solutions. We have invested a lot of hard work and resources and will actively defend our technology against infringers. This means using all available legal remedies against manufacturers and resellers who are infringing our intellectual property, where appropriate.”
Husqvarna is currently involved in litigation against Positec Germany GmbH claiming patent infringement by Positec in respect of the Worx Landroid mower.
Husqvarna pioneered the engineering of the robotic mower in 1995, an innovation that mows lawns by itself. Husqvarna Group has manufactured almost 200,000 robotic mowers is now offering its third generation of robotic mowers with the Husqvarna Automower and Gardena R40Li ranges.
