Submit Ideas or Inventions

Innovation has long been a part of our culture. We employ engineers, scientists and technical staff for researching and developing new products, processes and technology to meet our current and future needs.

Typically, we consider unsolicited ideas or inventions only when they’re protected by an issued, or pending, patent. We rarely commercialize unsolicited ideas, inventions or collaborations – many submissions are duplications of past research and development, while others often fall outside the scope of our business interests.

Given this, if you have an idea or invention you’d like us to consider, follow this process:

  1. Understand our requirements.
  2. Accept our terms of agreement.
  3. Submit your paperwork via postal mail.
  4. Wait approximately 60 days for a reply.

If you understand and agree to follow this process, please proceed.
