Bolingbrook company claims Amazon engaged in deceptive product sales

A Bolingbrook business that sells electronics and equipment parts has claimed Amazon is using its name and brand to market products that are not actually sold by it, according to court records.

The owners of Neuco, located at 515 Crossroads Parkway, filed a petition in Will County court to obtain records from Amazon to use in a potential lawsuit against the company.

Neuco claimed in the Oct. 17 petition that the business informed Amazon in February that it was “inappropriately marketing products on its websites as being manufactured by or sold by Neuco.”

Neuco sells items such as circuits, motors, thermostats, valves and control boards for fans and blowers, according to its website.

The Bolingbrook business claimed it has continued to request that Amazon stop using the Neuco name and cease “fraudulently representing the origins and supplier of certain products sold on Amazon.com.”

Neuco also claimed it requested Amazon provide the identities of sellers on its website that use the the business’s name to sell products.

The business claimed at least 52 products on Amazon’s website continue to “offer products fraudulently stating that they are manufactured or sold by Neuco.”

“Amazon and the unknown Amazon seller have been unjustly enriched by their misconduct,” the petition claimed.

Amazon spokesman Patrick Graham said the company did not have a comment in response to the petition’s allegations.

Neuco did not respond to a message on Thursday regarding its petition.

Neuco’s petition seeks to obtain records from Amazon for the amount of money made from items that were allegedly sold using the Neuco name since 2017. The petition also seeks communication between Amazon and Amazon sellers regarding Neuco products.

The case is scheduled for a hearing Feb. 10.
