Don't disrupt threads on the main boards - get it all out of your system here. Think of it as 'playtime'.

Chinese companies

Post by vwJim »

Being SPAM'ed by chinese companies wanting to break patent & copyright law so they can produce cheap / inferior versions of UK & European made products.

You can all bugger off, i'm not interested!

Ha ha,

They're pretty ruthless! I have seen blatant Chinese copy's of my company's weighers at exhibitions etc. Not a lot you can do as they're government aren't bothered about it at all. One of our customers bought one of these machines and it lasted 2 years before it was scrapped! (Our machines generally last 15-20 years before they're replaced) But it was that cheap that they weren't too bothered!

The Chinese will control the world at some point. It's not if, it's when!

When me and the wife were in Oz last year, all the tourist tat was made in China. Apparently the Chinese are the biggest tourist group in Oz these days and I found it quite amusing that all this tat is made in China, sold in tourist shops all over Oz, Purchased by the hoards of Chinese tourists and taken back home :lol:

Quite right .....let em have their own crap back, probably why they tour the world so much, the crap they buy doesn't last long so they got to go on holiday again to buy more crap............its a vicious circle :wink:

When companies sell to me I say - Where is it made... UK? You got the deal.. :D

Where ever I can I buy UK made, Then European and USA / Commonwealth. Last resort is Chinese.. :D

Just bought a very rusty and very old elliott progress bench drill. I'm spending hours de-rusting and repainting it. The Chinese can't copy one of those and I'm not getting shafted with a new Chinese thing.

Up yours wops :cheers:
