Dziennik Gazeta Prawna (Daily Legal Newspaper) published the ranking of entities that submitted the greatest number of patents and utility models in 2015. FAKRO is the first company on the list. Only prestigious universities and research institutes are placed higher.
“Taking the first place as a company in the ranking prepared by Polish Patent Office is a great honour and something to be proud of. The list shows the leading role of universities in creating new, patented solutions. Unfortunately, they are often not implemented in the industry. This may result from poor cooperation between research institutes and industry sector, lack of adequate budgets in educational institutions or incompatibility of these solutions with the needs of the industry. FAKRO demonstrates a great deal of creativity when submitting own solutions. We are the author of over 140 patent applications. A special thanks to our clients, partners and employees for a source of numerous inspirations”, commented Henryk Musiał, R&D Department Director.
It's been 25 years since FAKRO has in its structure Research & Development Centre which is a real reservoir of patents. More than 100 constructors work in the department. “The value of patented solutions is highly important for the company's development. This is one of the key drivers of development and distinguishing feature in a competitive market”, added Henryk Musiał.
