AC Schnitzer Taking Action Against Product Piracy

Image losses due to poor quality, and economic losses for the world-wide AC Schnitzer dealership organisation amounting to millions, are only two important reasons why AC Schnitzer is taking firm action against product piracy.


Image losses due to poor quality, and economic losses for the world-wide AC Schnitzer dealership organisation amounting to millions, are only two important reasons why AC Schnitzer is taking firm action against product piracy.

The wheel copies which mainly come from Asia have in some cases been seized by Customs and in others discovered by particularly vigilant customers.
Now that all cases of counterfeiting so far discovered have been processed, we have been able to record our first successes in the fight against these companies by the effect of temporary injunctions until legally enforceable judgements have been obtained against the product pirates.

In the second step now the wheels have been destroyed.

Here we received active support from the international specialist company in scrap and metal recycling, WERTZ Handelsges. mbH & Co. KG, which – like AC Schnitzer – is also based in Aachen. With their powerful cranes and a 1000 t scrap shears, the wheel copies were destroyed by an experienced team and sent for recycling.

We will continue the fight against all product counterfeiters and hence make an active contribution to customer safety. When the customer buys AC Schnitzer products, he rightly expects high quality, extensively tested special products which are guaranteed exclusive AC Schnitzer Original Parts.

We recommend high performance tyres from Continental and Michelin.
