press release
Thursday, February 09, 2012

Markey Machinery has announced that it has prevailed in a dispute over its’ longtime trademark, Render/Recover, which was initiated by another winch manufacturer.

 

On February 6, 2012 the United States Trademark Trial and Appeal Board did “dismiss with prejudice (the) Petition for Cancellation of the trademark Render/Recover, Serial Number 3,545,593.”

 

“The court decision recognized our origination of the term in 1994,” said Markey President Blaine Dempke. “It’s unfortunate that we had to defend something that was so clearly identified with our company, but defend it we did. We really had no other choice.”

Markey products include towing, shipassist, and escort winches; single or multidrum and tractionstyle deep sea research winches; capstans, windlasses and other high performance machines.
