[QUOTE=solentlife;807027]<snip>And lets be honest ... there are some names you mentioned there as manufacturers which in fact is not strictly true ... they do not manufacture all their gear .. certain lines are 'bought in' and labeled with the 'prestige' label. <snip>.
This usually happens when a well known brand wishes to expand into the economy / budget middle road sector ... cheaper to buy in than create own ... .[/
Sorry, error in translating Q&A,
did not mean all listed were in fact "manufacturers with own factory, production team",
was trying to keep answer short and simple.
Could expand, e.g. -refer posts 16 & 24
. but will refrain.
Have visited many of the actual factories in Europe
and throughout Asia, written manuals for several brands & simply
changed the "brand" and language on some of the re-brands.
"This usually happens when a well known brand wishes to expand into the economy / budget middle road sector ..
. cheaper to buy in than create own ... " - Confirmed.
