Counterfeit bearings – a major risk for manufacturers, the distributive trade and end customers

Trading counterfeit rolling bearings represents a substantial risk for distributors, manufacturers, and end customers that should not be underestimated. Customers should therefore always be vigilant – just as our certified sales partner SKAMA Industrial from Greece. He had serious doubts about the authenticity of the Schaeffler bearings offered by a competitor. Therefore, he offered his customer a free authenticity check of the cheaply sourced bearings. Together with the Schaeffler Brand Protection Team several counterfeit transactions were uncovered.
