When you’re the leading American manufacturer of pressure relief vents and magnetic vacuum breakers, someone will always try to horn in on your replacement parts business. The problem is, the counterfeiter does not know what the manufacturer’s product is designed to do, nor does he have to care. The counterfeiters use words like “aftermarket parts” or “generic parts” and this is supposed to instill confidence that these parts are up to Girard’s specifications. Often times the supplier doesn’t even notify you when he’s supplying a counterfeit part and you find out the hard way wit a loss of your tank or someone gets hurt. All they see is a commercial opportunity for themselves while you are stuck with parts that will not work properly. This has a direct effect on your bottom line and your reputation as a reliable carrier.
We design our products to work when you need them if only you insist on genuine Girard replacement parts. Check your parts room and make sure you’re getting what you paid for. Each Girard part is marked with our name and part number and/or is sealed in identifiable plastic bags so you can guarantee their quality and traceability.
