At Shurhold Industries, Inc., we welcome new and innovative ideas for our products and solutions. If you think you have an original invention, meaning that it is new to the market, and you think it can be a part of our products and solutions, please review our New Product Idea Submission Process below. This process provides important details to the conditions involved in our assessment of new ideas.


If you would like to share an idea or invention with us, this document will help you understand how to proceed. The following information details the conditions upon which we may consider your invention.

While our Innovation and Technology department is busy developing our products, we thank you for approaching us with your invention. It may be that your invention is suitable for us to pursue.

If original, your invention will be respected as such. If your invention is not original, there is a good chance that we have seen it before. Original inventions are more likely to provide benefits. The process of determining the category in which your invention belongs is governed by some basic rules to avoid misunderstandings.

Your invention should pass the following tests:

It is, or is associated with, a working product. Shurhold Industries, Inc. requires well thought out product and does not use this process for sales promotions and inventions.

It is a new invention to the public, industry and Shurhold Industries, Inc.

It would be commercially viable for Shurhold Industries, Inc.

It would not be an idea that Shurhold has already worked on either publicly or privately in our development process.


Shurhold Industries, Inc. prefers to work with people that have patented, or patent protected, inventions. Please forward a copy of the patent for your invention.  Due to the fact that Shurhold works on many ideas over several years of development it is possible your idea is not new or unique to us.  In many cases we have our own internal art and ideas for items submitted.  These submission would be rejected as Shurhold would retain the position of originator of the idea.  Therefore product submissions for ideas that are not protected are at the sole risk and discretion of the submitter.

Qualified Shurhold Industries, Inc. people will evaluate your submission. Please be patient during this period. Shurhold Industries, Inc. assumes no costs at this point in the process.

A signed formal Confidential Disclosure Agreement will be required if Shurhold Industries, Inc. decides to proceed past the evaluation stage.

Shurhold Industries, Inc. assumes no special obligation based on any disclosures. We cannot accept disclosures “in confidence” given the legal ramifications of the term. You must be the owner of the invention to have it considered by Shurhold Industries, Inc. If younger than nineteen, you must have a parent or guardian sign the Confidential Disclosure Agreement.



Shurhold Industries, Inc. may consider your invention, but only at your request.

We must be assured that you have full legal rights to the invention.

Submission of your invention to Shurhold Industries, Inc., does not establish a confidential relationship and we do not assure secrecy.

After evaluation, we are not obliged to provide feedback on your submission. We will let you know if your invention interests us. We will not divulge to you any prior related knowledge or knowledge obtained after your submission.

Shurhold Industries, Inc. assumes no obligations without a signed Confidential Disclosure Agreement. This agreement would be obtained after a successful evaluation.

Submitting your invention to Shurhold Industries, Inc. for evaluation releases no rights to any patent, or patent application, that you hold. Nor is Shurhold Industries, Inc. obligated to you, with respect to your invention, until a formal written agreement is completed.

Thank you for considering Shurhold Industries, Inc.
