According to the President and CEO of SAFTI FIRST, Mr. Bill O'Keeffe, "Even though there's growing concern among American manufacturers over patent infringement by foreign competitors, we are especially concerned about the infringement by other U.S. companies within the fire rated glazing industry seeking to benefit form our product development efforts.
