Now the Chinese are Hit by Fakers


CHINA: An established Chinese manufacturer of process refrigeration chillers has complained of having his products copied. Proving that it is not just well-known western brands that are targeted by counterfeiters, Chinese manufacturer Guangzhou Teyu Electromechanical, a company established in 2002 and producing around 50,000 process chillers per year, has complained of sub-standard fakes being passed off as its own S&A brand product. Guangzhou Teyu’s overseas sales manager Mia Fung told the Cooling Post that customers are easily deceived by the copies “because it looks quite like ours no matter from the chiller appearance, logo or packing. It’s difficult for customers to tell it at the beginning until the counterfeits have problems and customers ask us directly for after-sales service.” The problem has been around for some while and has affected products across the company’s range.
