I found the above very interesting, in actual fact I'm somewhat mystified. Dropped in to ECP this morning to purchase a fuel pump, they have Pierburg pumps on special offer. Normally they retail in or around the £150-170 mark, Euro's offer is £109 which is the lowest price I've ever come across. Opened up the Pierburg stamped box (with hologram) and find a pump made by company called IT of Poland with no reference to Pierburg, read the supplied paperwork and again no reference to Pierburg or for that matter it's parent company KSPG Automotive, Germany. Not happy, I explain to the sales guy & request a refund. I received the refund with no issues but at the same time no explanation offered on why the pump was stamped by a different manufacturer which I found a bit strange, maybe the sales guy just couldn't explain or couldn't be bothered. The upshot, I was content that I didn't get a unknown brand product (to me). At the same time, I was a bit annoyed. Was I being conned or was their some reasonable explanation? Decided to phone Pierburg and see if their was some sort of reasonable explanation. And indeed their is, well it's reasonable to Pierburg. It seems their car pumps are either manufactured in Poland or France and the Polish pumps are all stamped TI and not Pierburg. I asked why & why would a company delete a brand logo or name that's well respected and over a hundred years old for a name nobody seems to know? Pierburg couldn't answer that question and said it was a marketing decision! Now, I have a suspicion (possibly I'm totally wrong) why this situation has arisen but it actually has put me off going back and getting the Pierburg/TI pump (can't afford to have a pump fail on a forced induction engine) and I'm now going to buy a Bosch pump with Bosch stamp, made where ever.
