Approaching customers with a new trade mark
U. S. Steel Kosice recently extended the portfolio of its own registered trade marks. Registration with the Office for Industrial Property of the Slovak
Republic as well as with the International Office of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) in Geneva has given us exclusive entitlement to use the combined registered trade mark
U. S. Steel Europe in connection with the goods it has been registered for, in the following countries: Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Bosnia and Hercegovina, Bulgaria, France, Hungary,
Germany, Poland, Romania, Slovenia, Serbia, Switzerland, Turkey and Great Britain. On the international level this trade mark became effective on the day the application was filed, i.e. February
9, 2011, and in Slovakia it came into effect from August of this year. The new addition extends the family of trade marks in Slovakia which customers use to identify our products. These include
KORAD, KOHAL, KODUR and KOSMALT.
