Schneider Electric cautions against fake products

Schneider Electric, Ikeja Electric partner to improve electricity distribution

Schneider Electric, as part of efforts to check substandard products, staged an anti-counterfeit sensitisation exercise among trade partners and end-users at the Arena Market and Brown Street in Oshodi, Lagos State.

During the roadshow, the target audience was educated on original Schneider Electric products, which also provided the opportunity for customers to learn about licensed resellers and categories of products.

According to the channel’s sales director, Schneider Electric West Africa, Nurudeen Oyedeji, the exercise became important to end the progress of counterfeit products, just as customers must be ready to partner with the firm by purchasing strictly from approved distributors.

He said that the spread and accessibility of Schneider Electric’s product to customers in the community could be attributed to the credible distributors present within the Oshodi community.

“We can push Schneider Electric’s products to the end-users because of our resellers and distributors’ presence in this community; all SE’s customers in the Oshodi community are advised to purchase strictly from these distributors to avoid buying counterfeit products,” he said.
