Dear partners of the pneumatic sector I recommend being very careful with a Japanese company that sells michelin and bridgestone brands. This company may be committing crime. They will be informed if it is true shortly. everything is in the hands of lawyers and jatma association. We will not give a name in case it is a mistake. but soon we will inform.
Why is it that tire shops or tire distributors do not and don’t acknowledge that they are selling the customer a tire that is 3 years or 10 years old... does this non acknowledgement fall on falsification/ misleading customers to believe that the tire is new the year of purchase.. ??? Why is this aloud to go on
Do world leaders (more precisely snow and traction chains manufacturer) with history always act as reliable partners? When considering whether it is worth cooperating with a commercial company people ordinarily rely upon its merits, primarily its successful experience. Do they really do right following such a common way of choosing the partner to share business together? The #Austrian #Pewag company presents itself as well-known all over the world and one of the biggest manufacturers and distributors of #chains for diverse purposes as #snowchains, #tractionchains. Founded 300 years ago the company has had many factories (#Austria, #PuebloUSA) and representative offices throughout the world by now (one of which was located in Almaty, a large industrial center in the Republic of Kazakhstan. In 2016 keeping on doing business in Kazakhstan the company suddenly ceased complying with its obligations under previously signed agreements. In particular, the company management ceased to pay taxes and rent in a most irresponsible manner. It looked like the company bosses had just lost sight of their representative office in the city of Almaty. Several civil lawsuits were filed against the Pewag company in the Almaty court, Republic of Kazakhstan. The court ruled in favor of the plaintiff and ordered the defendant to re-register the legal entity and pay damages, including taxes and rent for the office space the company had used for its commercial purposes for a long time. It is interesting to note that Company officials did not even consider it necessary to attend the court hearings. However, nothing has changed since then. The Pewag company representatives continue refusing to comply with the courts' decisions. It should be stressed that the above company is considered a world leader with history, not a small company started a couple of years ago of which nobody has ever heard! In summary, sometimes international companies well-known throughout the world only act on the basis of their own interests in complete disregard of the principles and norms of ow world-wide and local laws. This sad fact is a matter of great concern for those who one day decided to cooperate with such partners.
