After an extremely long legal battle, A-Ward have won their case regarding patent infringement by Fabcon on their range of container tilters. This means that Fabcon are not allowed to sell their tilter in the UK by law. A-Ward tilters are a fully patented product and we believe them to be the best in the business. Their revolutionary tilting loaders for example, allow you to fill up every last inch of your shipping containers – and do it fast so you’ll save time and money. Further details regarding the case are given in the link below. Should you need any additional details on container loaders and unloaders or have concerns regarding the recent court decision then please do not hesitate to contact us.
To whom it may concern,
