Expert to analyse Tennant technology in Kärcher court case19th of July 2012
Kärcher's law suit against competitor Tennant over its claims about the ec-H2O water-based technology continues with news that the Stuttgart District Court - which is local to Kärcher's German headquarters - is to appoint an expert to investigate.
"We welcome this ruling by the Stuttgart District Court unreservedly," said Markus Asch, deputy chairman of the Kärcher Group's management board. "The ec-H2O technology that Tennant advertises is now to be put to the scientific test by a court-appointed expert. That tallies with the approach we have pursued since the start of the proceedings."
Kärcher instigated legal proceedings against several advertising claims made by Tennant, especially the claim that ordinary tap water can be converted in scrubber-driers into 'active water' that has a powerful detergent effect.
