Counterfeits

Why Genuine GAC

Governors America Corp (GAC) takes the protection of its brand very seriously. We like to think it stands for something, and hope that consumers know that anything carrying our trademark can be relied upon. We own a huge global portfolio of registered and unregistered trademark rights and none of these trademark rights, or any confusingly similar signs, logos/images, can be used without GAC’s consent. Doing so constitutes an infringement of our rights and that is something we cannot accept.

There is every reason to make sure that the product you purchase is genuine GAC quality. All GAC products are built on an impressive platform of know-how and experience. The material we use and the technology we apply are of the highest quality – which is why GAC products come with a multitude of international approvals. GAC takes vigorous quality measures to ensure that products are CE, UL, RoHS, and/or CSA certified. All GAC products are ISO9001 certified. We have extensive technical support to help you with your product. Counterfeits, on the other hand, are likely to have a number of shortcomings, and we will not be able to support any troubleshooting on fakes. These may interfere with the operation of an entire system and at worst, cause damage to your system. So it pays to stay clear of fake products, especially if you wish to protect your reputation in the market and your investment.

Fighting Counterfeits

Fake products give your business as well as our company a bad name. Therefore, we are doing everything we can to fight the counterfeits. GAC’s' legal department is constantly filing lawsuits against counterfeiters who are caught selling their fake GAC products through wholesalers. In addition to this, GAC never misses a chance to focus on the dangers of counterfeited products – at trade fairs and through authorized wholesalers.
