ABMA hosted a Fighting Counterfeits in the Bearing Supply Chain webinar on Tuesday, July 24. The webinar educated distributor partners at all levels of distribution on the realities of counterfeit bearings, their impact on the supply chain and what can be done to ensure that counterfeit bearings do not infiltrate the authorized bearing channels.

The webinar included an overview of the issue from ABMA and presentations on typical counterfeit supply chain, counterfeiting implications and counterfeit prevention by representatives from Timken, Schaeffler, NSK and SKF that oversee IP enforcement for their companies in the United States and beyond. The Q&A session generated valuable discussion around how this ever-growing issue is affecting the entire bearing supply chain and cannot be stopped without the support and engagement of all industry partners.

"The webinar was extremely educational and really showed that attacking counterfeiting is a top priority for the manufacturers.” – Webinar Attendee

ABMA and our global partner, the World Bearing Association (WBA), continue to attack this issue through criminal actions, awareness campaigns and government engagement.
