Cummins Inc. has announced that a settlement agreement has been reached with JM Turbo Technology Corporation precluding the manufacture or sale of products that infringe Cummins’s patents.
JM Turbo Technology acknowledged it illegally marketed and sold turbochargers protected by Cummins’s patents and other intellectual property rights registered in multiple countries. In addition, the Cummins patents that were infringed are valid and enforceable.
Conditions of the settlement include JM Turbo Technology’s agreement to stop all manufacturing, importing, exporting, advertising and/or selling of all infringing products. The settlement also calls for JM Turbo Technology to destroy all existing inventory of the infringing products.

“Integrity is one of Cummins’s core values and we take great pride in doing what is right for our customers and our products. Cummins, with support from our global partners, will continue to examine the marketplace to ensure the company’s intellectual property is protected,” Wright concludes.
