Ramsey Products has filed a legal action against Pennine Industrial in the United States fourth circuit district court.

Ramsey is the producer of Hyperlink silent chains and the owner of several registered United States trademarks for Hyperlink chains.

The action charges Pennine with willful trademark infringement and seeks appropriate injunctive relief as well as punitive damages.

Graham Womerseley, Pennine’s Sales Director, said: “We are aware of this action and it is in the hands of our lawyers.”
