Cig2o Maker Inks Licensing Agreement With Fontem Ventures
CAMARILLO, Calif. — Spark Industries LLC signed a global licensing agreement for the use of vapor technology-related patents controlled by Fontem Ventures. The pact covers the United States and international markets.
Camarillo-based Spark Industries distributes several nationally recognized brands including the Cig2o and Vapage brands of e-vapor hardware. The company also blends and bottles the Vapage, Blind Lion and Vapage Private Reserve brands of premium e-liquids.
"Spark wanted across-the-board access to the patented, covered technology as a benefit to its constituent customers — distributors, wholesalers, retailers and consumers," said Spencer Thompson, president of Spark Industries/Spark Vapor Brands.
Spark is one of a few U.S.-based companies to have reached a global licensing agreement with Fontem Ventures.
Headquartered in Amsterdam, Fontem Ventures is a consumer goods company developing electronic cigarette brands such as blu and JAI, as well as a lifestyle energy brand Reon.
"We have always been a company that lives by integrity and strives to operate in the best, ethical way. In obtaining the global license from Fontem Ventures, we have done just that, by utilizing Fontem's intellectual property in the correct way and insuring that our customers are protected from infringing Fontem's patents if they partner with Spark," Thompson added.
