The Gillette Company announced late Tuesday that it has filed a patent infringement suit against Energizer Holdings, charging that the new Schick Quattro razor violates a Mach3 shaving system technology patent.

Specifically, Gillette charges that Energizer has illegally incorporated the proprietary progressive blade geometry technology of the Mach3 system in the Schick product. Progressive geometry positions the blades to extend gradually closer to the beard, allowing for the closest, most comfortable shave in a single stroke (as pictured).

"We welcome honest and innovative competition, but we will vigorously defend our valuable intellectual property," said Peter K. Hoffman, president, Gillette Grooming. "Gillette's substantial investment in research and development ensures that our products perform the very best. We owe it to our consumers, trade customers and shareholders to protect that investment."

Filed on Tuesday in Federal District Court in Boston, MA, U.S., the lawsuit calls for preliminary and permanent injunctive relief, treble monetary damages and other relief.

Protected by more than 50 patents, the Mach3 and Mach3Turbo systems generated worldwide consumer sales of more than U.S. $2 billion in 2002.
