CASE STUDY - ASSET TRACKING AND MANAGEMENT
THE ORIENTAL EQUIPMENT MANUFACTURER (OEM)
China can be great for the bottom line, BUT when tooling drawings are stolen and parts manufactured that cannot be distinguished from the OEM part except by an expert or destructive material analysis, that is a problem--ESPECIALLY IF, the part fails in the field.
Our customer's irresistible deal did not take long to hit our dock. We recognized the counterfeits because the OEM assembly had a recognizable flaw!
We identified and palletized 150 falsified OEM serial numbers that cost our customer $450/each, for which our customer received full credit.
