Look out for these "warning flags", and please contact us to authenticate your SKF goods.
- The marketing of counterfeits is done in a way most distributors would recognize. An email is sent from a person claiming partnership with premium brand owners, offering industrial or automotive products directly from stock at competitive prices. Be careful! This could be a source of counterfeit SKF products.
- Be suspicious when non-authorized suppliers offer short lead times for products known to have longer lead times from SKF.
- Suppliers of counterfeits may also offer certificates stating that the products are genuine SKF. Such documents are not trustworthy.
- Mounting difficulties and /or pre-mature failures, could be signs that a product is counterfeit.
