On February 16, 2021, the ITC issued a notice of enforcement proceeding in Certain Blowers and Components Thereof (Inv. No. 337-TA-1217). The enforcement complaint was filed by Regal Beloit America, Inc. of Beloit, Wisconsin (“Regal”). The notice identifies East West Manufacturing, LLC of Atlanta, Georgia and East West Industries of Binh Duong, Vietnam (collectively, “East West”) as respondents. The enforcement proceeding was instituted to determine whether East West violated the November 12, 2020 consent order in the underlying investigation through the importation and sale of a “redesigned” blower that Regal alleges is “virtually identical” to the original blower that East West acknowledged infringed the patent-in-suit and is covered by the consent order. See our February 4, 2021 post for more details regarding the enforcement complaint.
