Officine Mistrello is one of those companies that in the last twenty years has radically changed the way of approaching the market by developing particular attention to intellectual property.
Officine Mistrello has a flourishing intellectual activity. The patent portfolio, although not numerous, is made up of rights which have monopolized the sector in which it operates on various fundamental technical aspects and with licenses on some of these currently active protected technologies.
The software, although not registered, is another intellectual property asset whose value is fundamental for Officine Mistrello. The competitive advantage deriving from effective programming of the machinery produced by the company plays an increasingly important role: customers increasingly demand more speed, efficiency, reduction of errors and tracking. In this period, the company is evaluating the best protection strategies for its software to structure a confinable and easily identifiable capital around it.
Finally, it should be emphasized that the company's institutional brand has a long history with over two centuries of entrepreneurial history behind it. The first activities of the Mistrello family date back to 1805, configuring the brand as one of the oldest in Italy operating without interruption.
The interlayer removal system
The patent protection activity continued with the entry into the European phase of the international patent WO2019244061A1. The current patent portfolio in key countries, which currently amounts to 13 industrial rights granted in Italy and Germany, is also kept alive.
It is worth mentioning an additional technology protected and monopolized by Officine Mistrello: the interlayer (glass spacer) removal system subject to the various validations of the patent families EP2070848, EP2261145, EP2261146 and EP2261147. To date, the market is constantly monitored and there are no companies in the handling sector that offer such a system.
