A southeast Nebraska manufacturer is suing two of its former employees because it believes they stole trade secrets about its high-tech retail displays.

Beatrice-based Store Kraft Manufacturing is suing former CEO Jac Crawford and former technology manager Michael Sterling.

Store Kraft is also suing Q5, the Plano, Texas-based firm Crawford and Sterling work for now.

The lawsuit says the technology Q5 offers customers is similar to what Store Kraft's 5-Stat unit developed. And Store Kraft says the name of Q5 is too similar to 5-Stat's name.

Q5 was just incorporated in January.

The lawsuit was filed late last week, so Crawford, Sterling and Q5 have yet to respond to the allegations.
