Astatement from Bosch, in which they said they will comply with the ITC ban on its Reaxx saw, was a top story this month. Despite complying with the ban, Bosch said it will still explore appeal options, and vowed to support Reaxx distributors and end users with service and parts. Bosch’s Reaxx saw, which includes flesh-sensing anti-injury mitiga- tion technology, was found to be in violation of SawStop’s patents for similar technology.
Next up was the story of Marucci, who recently
seized a large share of the baseball bat market from
industry leader Louisville Slugger. Marucci’s bats
can be customized and personalized, with the choice
of maple or ash, as well as length, drop weight, and
engravings. The company produces 1,200 bats a day.
Also big this month was news that Taylor
Stave, a North Carolina-based maker of planks
and other components for wood barrels used to
age wine, will invest nearly $400,000 at its facility.
The investment will create 28 jobs over the next
three years. Rick Taylor, owner of Taylor Stave,
says the company’s expertise with American
White Oak, which is valued by wine producers,
has increased demand for his products. ;
