A widespread industry
Counterfeit products are an issue for all branded bearing manufacturers. They exist in all geographical markets, in all industrial segments and for all bearing types and sizes. Seals and grease products are also affected. Customers are being cheated.
Counterfeit bearings and other counterfeit products are usually low-cost, no name products. They are illegally labeled and marketed with another company's brand, and placed in packaging that appears identical to genuine packaging used by the brand owner. Counterfeit bearings are sold to unsuspecting customers, usually around the same price as genuine products.
Machinery breakdowns and possible injuries
The risks for the customer can be serious. Counterfeit bearings may cause machinery breakdowns, costly production stoppages and injuries to people.
Fighting counterfeiting, SKF is taking action!
SKF continuously communicates with customers and authorized distributors to spread the knowledge about counterfeits and how to avoid being cheated. More information is also available in the brochure "Where are your bearings coming from?"
SKF actively assists local law enforcement authorities in taking action against this illegal trade. Successful raids and closed businesses do great harm to the counterfeit trade.
SKF and other bearing manufacturers work through the World Bearing Association (WBA). WBA is currently investing in a global information campaign against counterfeiting. Learn more on the www.stopfakebearings.com campaign site.
