CRANFORD, NJ — Jaclo Industries, based here, has reached an exclusive patent rights agreement with Melville, NY-based I.W. Industries, and its divisions Barand and Concinnity, the company has announced. Under the terms of the agreement, Jaclo now has certain exclusive patent rights to manufacture and to means of production for a portion of the I.W. Industries/Barand/Concinnity offerings.

Citing an opportunity to enhance its thermostatic valve line, the agreement also gives Jaclo patents rights and means to produce Concinnity’s decorative grab bars program, including the handheld shower holder. Among the other products Jaclo has secured are decorative shower door pulls and pot fillers.
