Looks can be deceptive. Be aware of fake Danfoss products to protect your own reputation and the reputation and safety of your customers.
It pays to stay clear of counterfeited products.
Danfoss products are significant and likely to jeopardise your reputation in the market. Only by choosing 100 per cent genuine Danfoss products you get the quality you paid for and avoid system breakdowns and business losses.
“At Danfoss, we know that fake products give our wholesalers as well as our company a bad name. Therefore, we are doing everything we can to fight the counterfeits. Our Intellectual Property department is constantly investigating potential counterfeit traders in the region and taking suitable action against them”, says Vikas Anand, Head of Cooling - Asia Pacific.
Danfoss is using all options within the legal system to fight counterfeits – from collecting intelligence from internal and external sources to sending warning letters and filing criminal and civil suits. Usually fake products are uncovered during regular street raids in big cities together with local police authorities.
In addition to this, Danfoss never misses a chance to focus on the dangers of counterfeited products – at trade fairs and at authorised wholesalers. An Asian partner campaign has recently been launched to inform about dangers and annoyances related to fake Danfoss products and to involve wholesalers and end-users in the fight against counterfeits – e.g. through outlet kits and anonymous report forms.
It pays to avoid unreliable counterfeits
All Danfoss products are built on an impressive platform of knowhow and experience. The materials used and the technologies applied are of the highest quality – which is why Danfoss products come with a multitude of international approvals.
Counterfeits, on the other hand, are unreliable and likely to have a number of shortcomings. These may interfere with the operation of an entire system and, at worst, cause the compressor to break down. So it pays to stay clear of fake products. Especially, if you wish to protect your reputation in the market.
How to identify fake Danfoss products
