Today was the first day of hearings at the Stuttgart District Court in the legal dispute between Kärcher and Tennant. Tennant has until March 13 to submit a further opinion to the Chamber for Commercial Affairs, and Kärcher has until April 3 to submit a response. The Court is due to issue its ruling on April 27.
“In the oral proceedings we reiterated our view of the matter clearly and precisely, and it was evident that the Court had familiarised itself very well with the facts of the case. So we look forward in confidence to the pronouncement of judgment at the end of April,” said Markus Asch, Managing Director Professional Products and Deputy Chairman of the Alfred Kärcher GmbH & Co. KG management.
