Counterfeit Bearings Cost Your Business - 08/29/11
That name brand bearing you just put into operation, may not have actually been manufactured by who you think. It very well may be counterfeit. It’s an unfortunate fact that counterfeit bearings are present in today’s marketplace. It’s even more unfortunate that you probably can’t tell that it’s fake – not by look or price.
Counterfeit bearings are very costly. From the cost of the reputation of the manufacturer to the down time that the sub-standard bearing caused due to early failure. A fake bearing can even lead to physical harm through its failure and pose legal consequences to the buyer.
At Bearing Headquarters we work diligently to assure our customers are getting the high quality, name brand product that they paid for. We work closely with manufacturers in their fight against the counterfeiters and only buy the products that we distribute from trusted sources.
