Danfoss is a world leading international manufacturer in the fields of refrigeration and air conditioning, heating and water treatment, transmission control, etc. Since the mid-1990s, Danfoss has entered the Chinese market with its world-renowned brand of "Danfoss to meet the domestic demand for rubber melt gear pumps with large deformation test stands if the rubber elongation is relatively large". Adhering to its consistent concept of being close to customers, Danfoss has successfully established the brand image of Danfoss' enterprises and products in the Chinese market through first-class technology and honest services for Chinese customers
in 2007, Danfoss found a fake refrigeration expansion valve with the trademark "Danfo balances SS through the weighing organization connected with the fixed chuck" printed on the prominent position of the valve body in the Chinese market, and with false information such as made in Denmark. After investigation, it was manufactured and sold by a refrigeration equipment company in Zhejiang without the permission of Danfoss. In December, 2008, Danfoss filed a lawsuit in Beijing No. 1 Intermediate People's court, requiring the Zhejiang refrigeration equipment company to immediately stop the infringement and compensate for economic losses
in April 2009, the Beijing first intermediate people's court made a first instance judgment, holding that the Zhejiang refrigeration equipment company used the same trademark as the "Danfoss" trademark on the refrigeration expansion valve of the product involved without the permission of Danfoss, which was an infringement of the exclusive right to use the registered trademark of Danfoss, and ordered the Zhejiang refrigeration equipment company to stop the infringement immediately, Compensate the plaintiff Danfoss for the economic losses and reasonable expenses incurred due to the lawsuit by more than 200000 yuan
Mr. Paulson, President of Danfoss China, said: "At the dawn of World Intellectual Property Day, Danfoss won the first instance of the trademark infringement case. We are sincerely happy for the achievements made by the Chinese government in protecting intellectual property rights. Danfoss and the Chinese government have good cooperation experience in intellectual property protection. We are convinced that this will play a positive and effective role in protecting the interests of our customers and dealers in China."
Danfoss has always attached importance to the protection of intellectual property rights and the maintenance of corporate image, and finally put product safety and customer interests first. These inferior counterfeit products not only fail to realize the function of the product, but also may cause damage to the user's refrigeration and air conditioning system. In order to safeguard the interests of customers, Danfoss has long paid close attention to infringement activities in domestic and foreign markets, and actively assisted the government law enforcement departments to crack down on fake and shoddy products, effectively curbing the momentum of fake refrigeration and control products
as a member of the quality brand protection committee (QBPC), Danfoss China is very satisfied with the outcome of the case. Mr. Paulson said, "Danfoss has won two consecutive intellectual property cases in two years, which makes us happy to see that the Chinese government has made a lot of fruitful work in improving the market competition environment in recent years. As always, we will work closely with relevant departments of the Chinese government to promote the protection of intellectual property rights and protect the fundamental interests of Chinese customers and dealers."
