Webb trademark recorded with US Customs
Jan 1, 2007 12:00 PM
The recent federal registration trademark obtained by Webb Wheel Products Inc, covering its brake drum part numbers, has now been recorded with United States Customs Service for monitoring.
This step enables the company to actively investigate and pursue legal action against importers that use the Webb-registered part numbers on brake drums manufactured outside the United States. Webb will take appropriate action to stop the importation and sale of all counterfeit brake drums. All aftermarket distribution channels will be audited periodically to ensure products with Webb part numbers have been produced in the company's US facilities under its quality standards.
All Webb brake drums are produced in US facilities and are routinely tested to ensure they meet or exceed the criteria as set forth by the FMVSS 121 stopping distance regulations as well as the company's own quality standards. Besides the part number, the Webb cast-in name is clearly visible on brake drums manufactured and distributed by the firm.
