Turbosmart Working to Combat Known Counterfeiters


We first mentioned the appearance of counterfeit “Turbosmart” parts on the market several years back. The battle against counterfeiters is one we are still fighting, but with the help of our loyal customers, we’ve made steady progress in taking out some of the manufacturers faking our products.

As such, when we’ve determined that a product is indeed counterfeit, through a close inspection, we’ve begun compiling a list to warn potential buyers of the some of the sellers that are out there trying to pass a cheap counterfeit off as the real deal.

A few reminders when you’re on the hunt for the best boost control products in the world:

  1. Turbosmart products are all manufactured in Australia. If an online listing indicates otherwise, it is a counterfeit.
  2. Turbosmart does NOT subcontract work to anywhere else in the world. Any ad or email that says the seller “manufactures for Turbosmart” is DEFINITELY selling fakes.
  3. The only surefire way to make sure you get authentic product is to only buy from authorized dealer. If you’re not sure a dealer is authorized, feel free to shoot us an email to ask!
  4. Neither Turbosmart, nor our authorized dealers sell on Chinese manufacturer direct sites, such as AliBaba.com, or TaiBao.com.
  5. Lastly, and as always, bear in mind that any deal that seems too good to be true, usually is.

If you’ve got a product you think could be counterfeit, or if you’re looking to verify the authenticity of a part you’re considering buying, we’re always available via email to help out – be sure to include photos for the best possible response. If you have additional sellers to add to this, please email Kirstin at kstone@turbosmartusa.com, and the list will be updated as necessary.

Turbosmart Hits the UK this Month


 

TURBOSMART SET TO GIVE THE UK A BOOST

Turbosmart, the world’s leading manufacturer of high performance turbo management and boost control accessories has announced the opening of a new facility in the United Kingdom. The globally recognized, Australian-owned company has been exporting products to the United Kingdom for many years, and is now targeting massive expansion in the area, as well as the surrounding European and Middle East markets, with a full-time warehousing, sales, marketing, and local research and development facility in Birmingham.

Supporting the global market has been a key strategy for Turbosmart since it opened its Sydney-based manufacturing facility in 1997. In 2007 Turbosmart USA was established in Southern California, and the company’s North American business is stronger than ever.

Turbosmart UK aims to emulate this same success by bringing a more personalised approach, tailored specifically to the UK market. This means hiring UK residents, continued support of the local motorsports scene, and ensuring Turbosmart continues to innovate through UK specific research and development programs.

Newly appointed General Manager of Turbosmart UK, Chris Milne, is well experienced to take on the role, having been Turbosmart’s Export Manager prior to this new undertaking. “The UK region represents a massive opportunity for us moving forward,” says Milne. “Opening our own facility here is a truly exciting project, as it allows us access to the local market and vehicles so we can continue to adapt ourselves, and our technology to best support the UK and Europe. We’re bringing a full research and development program with us, and will be looking for the right people to help us build on our existing relationships with the local distributors and sponsored drivers we’ve been working with for the past decade.”

Mr. Milne is also very enthusiastic about the local motorsports scene, “We are currently a major sponsor of the Scottish Super Lap series, and are looking forward to both continuing that support, and also becoming more involved in regional motorsport within the UK.” Motorsport makes up a huge part of Turbosmart’s history, as well as its design and engineering process. In fact, many world record holders across many disciplines from Drag Racing to Time Attack use Turbosmart products to achieve their goals. This invaluable motorsports experience and race-proven knowledge is then transferred into products for both race cars and road cars, such as the popular Ford Focus, and Subaru WRX.

Turbosmart founder and CEO, Nic Cooper says, “We don’t believe in producing ‘hero’ products for the privileged few – rather, high quality solutions using technology born and proven in Motorsport that any enthusiast or professional can have for their car.”

High quality is definitely a huge part of the Turbosmart mantra.  Today, all Turbosmart products are still proudly designed and manufactured under the one roof at the performance brand’s HQ in Sydney. The brand goes to such lengths as to quality test every single product before it is boxed and shipped. Not one in a hundred, not even one in ten.  Every.  Single.  Product.

This kind of personal, hands-on attention to detail and quality control is what makes up the DNA of all Turbosmart products. Knowing that the products are built to last and ‘Engineered to Win’ gives enthusiasts and professional racers the world over the confidence to use Turbosmart.

This confidence and personal touch is what Turbosmart UK brings with it when opens its doors on August 25th 2014.
