Cryoquip, LLC Files Trade Secrets Case Against Incryo Systems Pvt. Ltd.
Murrieta, CA, January 22, 2019 – On September 28, 2018, Cryoquip, LLC, a subsidiary of Cryogenic Industries, Inc., based in Murrieta, California, filed a lawsuit against Incryo Systems Pvt. Ltd. based in India, and against Cryoquip’s former employee, Bryan Smith, who Incryo lists as its Technical Director.

In addition to its claim for misappropriation of trade secrets, Cryoquip also asserts in its lawsuit a claim for breach of contract against Smith, as well as claims for tortious business interference, and state and federal unfair competition against both Incryo and Smith.
