Action is taken against counterfeit product

Counterfeiting is becoming more and more of a problem for electronic manufacturers, particularly when passed off as original product, resulting in many instances of warranty problems for manufacturers and users alike.

At a recent exhibition a number of Asian companies were found to be offering direct copies of LEMO Push-Pull connectors, sometimes exactly copying the LEMO branding, catalogue and part numbers. LEMO took appropriate action and, through a combination of customs (illegal import of counterfeit products) and legal means (breaking copyright) these products were cleared from the relevant stands with penalties being imposed.

LEMO will continue to take every opportunity to demonstrate to counterfeiters and their importers that action can and will be taken against them.
