Our products are backed by significant input in terms of both time and resources. Graberg's product development team attach great importance to creating smart designs combined with optimal ergonomics.

Design registration

Design protection safeguards us against our competitors making something that is similar to our product. Trademark registration protects the name and the conceptual framework we use for the products. Ultimately it's a matter of protecting an edge in the market we have worked hard to achieve.

— We have largely carried out the application process ourselves. It's principally a cost issue, but the application process is also quite straightforward. There are in addition some good online guides, says Granberg.
