“We are very pleased the court has granted this important injunction,” said Gary Hammerslag, CEO of Boa Technology Inc. “This ruling confirms the importance and strength of our patents that protect our innovative technology. Boa Technology Inc. has developed unique closure systems for footwear and other products for premium brand customers and we are committed to enforcing our patents to protect many years of investment and the superior image associated with our products."
