Client Spotlight: Expanded Technologies
Boyle Fredrickson Atty. Peter Stomma has worked with Expanded Technologies for 10 years. In that time, he has helped Expanded Technologies President and CEO Richard Bushey obtain several patents and trademark registrations and negotiated several licensing agreements on his behalf. Expanded Technologies’ product lines are essential in numerous environments including homes, offices, hospitals, restaurants, hotels and schools.
“We’re both in the protection business.” says Stomma. “Expanded Technologies protects our floors from scratches and gouges. Boyle Fredrickson protects their innovations from infringement and piracy.”
Richard Bushey first began manufacturing heavy duty felt pads in 1981. Six years later, he founded Expanded Technologies, now headquartered in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Since that time, Expanded Technologies has grown into the country’s third largest company in its market. According to Bushey, Expanded Technologies has benefited greatly from its partnership with Boyle Fredrickson as Stomma continues to expertly manage its existing patents and obtains new patents for its surface protection products.
“Patent protection is critical for success in this industry,” remarks Bushey. “Our intellectual property is often the only thing that separates us from our competition. We usually call on Peter and Boyle Fredrickson three to four times a year for various projects. Their efforts help us remain successful in an industry where securing and owning patents is a must.”
