Consumers rely on the quality assurance of a trusted automotive parts Brand for both effective results and personal safety, but counterfeit parts are significantly undermining this confidence. How can Brand Owners ensure that vehicle repairers, consumers and even insurers will be 100% confident that they are getting genuine parts?

 

The U.S-based Motor and Equipment Manufacturers Association (MEMA) estimates that counterfeit automobile parts cost the global industry about US$12 billion per annum.
