CHESHIRE, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Recently it was brought to McGuire Manufacturing Co., Inc.'s attention that The ACA Revocable Trust doing business as Specified Trim began offering similar products that McGuire sells. It was also learned that The ACA Revocable Trust/Specified Trim was using a part numbering system almost identical to McGuire’s.
When it was pointed out to them that this could cause confusion in the marketplace, ACA/Specified Trim agreed to adopt an alternative numbering system for its products. ACA/Specified Trim will begin using a new numbering system and it will use its old numbering system on product already in packaging until October 1, 2013.
The parties are pleased that they have been able to reach an amicable result which promotes competition while maintaining the uniqueness of each company and its numbering systems
