Farrell Bearings Ltd ensures all product is genuine
Counterfeit product is a serious issue in the bearing market and it is not always easy to identify by end users.
Products can look very similar to the genuine item and have similar markings and packaging. Some will even have certificates of authenticity to convince you of their integrity.
There are things you can do to prevent the possibility of buying counterfeit product.
- Source your product from authorised distributors - This is the best way to ensure that your product has come directly from the manufacturer. Farrell Bearings is an authorised distributor for FAG INA NSK and TIMKEN. Farrell bearings supplies many other brands and also ensures that our products are sourced from manufacturers directly or their authorised distributors.
- Be weary of a fantastic deal - Counterfeit product is often significantly cheaper than original product. If the brand you are buying is considered a quality brand and it is being offered at a budget price - make sure you can trace its authenticity.
