In ACT’s 35 years of business, there has never been a breach of confidentiality. ACT maintains a policy that we own no patents or intellectual property which ensures that any technology developed while working for a client is the property of that client.

Don Cherry, President , Crop Performance Division, H.J. Baker

“Applied Chemical Technology’s solid reputation on confidentiality and the protection of client owned intellectual property is one reason when I worked for a previous employer, we selected ACT. I found the ACT team to be highly professional with a strong commitment to policies and procedures that safeguarded our confidential information and IP.”

Don Lauweryssen, Vice President Business Development, Yargus Manufacturing Inc.

“My company has had a long relationship with ACT. From time to time ACT has declined additional development opportunities to ensure they do not risk IP of any of their other clients. Any company can have the proper legal agreements in the file. The actions of the personnel at ACT demonstrate a commitment to integrity that keeps us coming back.”
