Technology Transfer

Tech Transfer to Algerian Company

Through our international projects and existing technology transfer agreements, we at Winter Panel have earned a reputation for technological excellence, ethical business practices and creative solutions for our customers’ requirements. We have the capability to export substantial quantities of housing from our United States facility. Our experience, however, indicates that where substantial ongoing quantities of housing are required, an in-country manufacturing facility generates attractive returns on investment.

The License may not be assigned without prior written consent. In order to maintain the exclusive right to sell and/or manufacture in the Territory, the Licensee is required to meet a minimum annual sales volume. Should the Licensee fail to meet this minimum volume, Winter Panel may at its option convert the License to a nonexclusive basis.

Equipment Design and Manufacture: Winter Panel will prepare performance specifications and preliminary design drawings for all required equipment. The Licensee may elect to subcontract with Winter Panel for the fabrication of the equipment, seek competitive bids from third-party vendors with Winter Panel's assistance, or procure the equipment on their own.

Compensation: The Licensee will pay Winter Panel an initial license fee in two installments. The initial license fee is used to support Winter Panel’s assistance to the Licensee during the technology transfer process. In addition, the Licensee will pay Winter Panel quarterly royalties on commercial production. Royalty payments are used by Winter Panel to provide continuing technical support, for research and development, and for ongoing process and product improvement. The bulk of Winter Panel's compensation is from the royalty payments, which are due only upon the success of the Licensee.

Term and Termination: The standard License will remain in effect for a period of 10 years from execution. At the end of the 9th year, the Licensee either renews the License for 10 years with an additional payment to be negotiated, or loses the right to extend the License. If the Licensee fails to renew at the end of the 9th year the License becomes nonexclusive for the last year.

Benefits to the Buyer: Winter Panel will design a manufacturing process, which optimizes output levels to the Licensee's raw materials and labor availability. The process can be highly automated where labor costs or output requirements are high, or modified to utilize more labor where labor costs or output requirements are lower. The product also offers significant regional export potential. The universal need for housing has generated a substantial demand for state of the art construction materials and systems throughout the world.
