Cloned Valves

RuB has grown in the past thirty years to be an important player in the world valve business. The route was not easy and has required major investments in machineries, equipment, logistics, people and a serious commitment to continued improved quality. We are certified to ISO 9001:2008 by Lloyd's Register and further efforts were made to comply with latest regulations in Europe (PED) and around the world. Along with this, new products are being developed and our catalogue continues to become reacher to help you increase your business and reliability in the valve industry.

Regretfully, there are areas in the world, where business ethic has different values and it is no news that manufacturers in the Far East have copied famous brands. RuB is among those being copied. Copies of RuB valves have been exhibited at shows and some products were distributed. RuB has already taken legal actions against manufacturers in the Far East and is currently prosecuting importers of false products.

RuB owns registered trademarks and logos that will actively and legally protect.

It is also in your own interest, that any information about copies of RuB valves is brought to our attention with names, dates, etc. It is our firm commitment to fight unfair competition in any possible way and those who will actively show their support to RuB, will be awarded.

We are worried for our brand awareness but we are much more worried for our customers! If our customers install in their system a valve believing it is produced in Italy while it is in fact produced in the Far East, and this valve is unable to stand pressure or doesn't meet proper standards of quality, they could put at risk the entire system!

We anticipate our gratitude for your cooperation in this issue, we fight this curse but we need also your help!

Quality of ball valves depends upon engineering, extensive testing, choice of materials, tight tolerances, cleanliness, reliable inline tests.
