Ekspla – Leveraging IP: From Research Tools To Industry Applications

By Christian Hackl

EKSPLA, a Lithuanian SME set up in 1992, started off supplying customised high-performance laser systems to scientific laboratories. It later extended its product range to standardised laser systems for industrial applications. The move to producing standardised lasers made IP more important. EKSPLA now owns twelve patent families. In addition, some of its incremental innovations are kept as trade secrets. EKSPLA participates in EU projects and co-operates on R&D with contract manufacturers. Decisions to file patent applications are taken together with its partners. As its main competitors are based in Europe, EKSPLA looks forward to the Unitary Patent as a means of securing more extensive patent protection in the region.
