Product pirates don’t just copy expensive watches and clothing but also safety-related bus and coach replacement parts. The meticulous detective work of the OMNIplus brand protection team is aimed at exposing them.
Everyone has seen the spectacular images: customs officers use a bulldozer to destroy whole containers full of counterfeit goods. The devious practices of product pirates create a market worth hundreds of billions. They save on development costs – and also on quality. For parts with an important safety function, such as brakes, headlights, rear lights, windscreens or chassis parts, this can have catastrophic results: a much longer brake path, increased wear or the total failure of the forged part can lead in the most extreme cases to a fatal accident. That is why OMNIplus works rigorously to identify and expose counterfeit replacement parts.
