Former business partner created a new company and stole Polaris technology and design
LAKEWOOD, N.J. (March 23, 2013) – Polaris America, LLC, a manufacturer of innovative wind turbines, has been awarded a court injunction that prohibits Argosy Wind Power from selling wind turbines until November, 30, 2014. Polaris had filed a lawsuit claiming Argosy stole Polaris technology and design in order to manufacture wind turbines under the Argosy name. The ruling was handed down on February 19, 2013.
“We finally have justice,” said Christopher Filos, owner and proprietor of Polaris America. “The court rightfully ruled that they cannot steal our innovations and get away with it. We will vigorously defend this and pursue anyone who has a similar infraction against us.”
The founders of Argosy Wind Power were employees of Polaris America for a number of years. According to Filos, when they left Polaris to form Argosy Wind Power, they stole all of the technology and design that Polaris America had developed. Argosy even used the same website template and language that Polaris was using at the time.
Polaris America manufactures small wind turbines that provide the performance of larger turbines in a smaller package. Their innovative technology and engineering provides wind power solutions to homeowners, businesses, organizations and communities that are generally underserved by suppliers of large wind turbines.
Thanks to this court ruling, Argosy has been blocked from stealing the technology developed by Polaris and selling wind turbines. Polaris America retains its technology and design, and will continue to supply wind turbines to dealers around the world, including the United States, the United Kingdom and Italy.
