An Elkhart County RV products maker filed suit Thursday against one of its competitors, claiming patent and trademark infringement. Elkhart-based Furrion is suing Way Interglobal LLC, also a manufacturer of products for the recreational vehicle industry. The two companies sit just five miles apart.

The suit was filed in U.S District Court for the Northern District of Indiana.

In the lawsuit, Furrion claims Way Interglobal violated Furrion’s intellectual property by selling its 2-in-1 range ovens. Furrion says it has several patents for the oven and accuses Way Interglobal of unauthorized use of the technology. The lawsuit seeks damages and an injunction to stop Way Interglobal from selling that product.

“Our engineers and developers have invested their careers in creating the best products on the market.  Furrion applied and was granted several patents to protect their work and the incredible innovation they have put forth into these products.  We will do what is necessary to ensure that technology stays proprietary,” said Aaron Fidler, co-founder and chief executive officer for Furrion.

Inside INdiana Business has reached out to Way Interglobal for a comment.
