b2ap3_thumbnail_Alert-Icon-.pngValtorc International has been notified about several websites and one specific Chinese oriented company that is illegally reproducing Valtorc International actuators.  The company, which is located in China and listed on multiple Asian market websites such as AliExpress and Baidu has violated Valtorc copyrights, trademarks and any patents associated with Valtorc International products.

The products in question are actuators which have the Valtorc International trademark, marked as "Valtorc Actuators USA".  The part numbers start with a "UM-XX-XX" which has been traced to various locations, email addresses, online aliases and Chinese IP numbers. 

We advise our current and future customers to be on the look out for fake, counterfeit, stolen and replica Valtorc International products.  We believe we are the target of this attack due to our American presence and our trusted 40 year brand name with high quality products.

It is very important to note that these actuators are NOT made to the same standards of our Valtorc International products.  This is the same low quality reproduction seen in fake watches, computer hardware and brand name clothing also seen in recent news.

We urge anybody who spots the below products to contact our company president, AJ Bental (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) or at 770-423-7100.

All Valtorc Products have a serial number prefix seen below:
