555 is owned by Sankei Industry Co., Ltd., Japan's largest manufacturer of suspension and steering parts. All products are manufactured under strict control and meet the requirements of the ISO 9001 certification system. Products of Sankei Industry Co., Ltd. so popular in the world that there are a huge number of fakes from China and Taiwan, which are also offered under the 555 brand, but from Sankei Industry Co., Ltd. there are no enterprises outside of Japan.
Currently, Sankei Industry Co., Ltd. marks all manufactured parts with a special hologram to distinguish original products from fakes. Beware of fakes supplied by “gray” dealers, whose packaging at first glance is no different from the original 555 products. So, you can stumble upon the same orange boxes, but after a closer look, it becomes clear that they are indicated on a completely different, unknown manufacturer - HWANG YO CO., LTD., And instead of a hologram a sticker similar to it.
