Channell Commercial Corporation Sues PenCell Plastics and Hubbell for Patent 
Infringement Based on Channell's Enclosures for Underground
LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/27/14 --  Channell Commercial
Corporation ("Channell" or the "Company") of Temecula, California,
announced that it has filed a patent infringement lawsuit in the
United States District Court for the Central District of California
against PenCell Plastics ("PenCell") of Rocky Mount, North Carolina,
who is now owned by Hubbell Incorporated ("Hubbell") of Shelton,
The complaint alleges that certain of PenCell's products infringe
Channell's U.S. Patent Nos. 7,381,888 entitled "Grade Level
Enclosures for Underground Utility Connections." This patent relates
to Channell's sidewall structural design for protecting underground
closures and cable storage. 
CEO William Channell Jr. notes that the patents at issue are part of
Channell's core technology. "While we hope to resolve our differences
with Hubbell fairly and amicably, Channell considers its technology
proprietary and will legally protect its forward thinking designs
against copying by others."  
Christie, Parker & Hale represents Channell. Attorney David Dillard
leads the legal team that filed the case. "We are confident that
Channell has strong patent rights that are being infringed by
PenCell. Our job is to protect and enforce those rights so that
Channell receives the benefits of its innovations," said Dillard.  
Channell is a leading manufacturer of outside plant (OSP) underground

Channell's versatile utility vaults, designed for ground level usage,
such as greenbelts, sidewalks and driveways, provide secure
