My company manufactures a product and sell to consumers. I recently found a company of which we've never heard of before selling our product

2 Answers. Asked on Jun 08th, 2017 on Business Law - New York
More details to this question:
We manufacture a product and sell to a consumer. We recently found a company online buying from that consumer, repacking the material and putting our company name on the product and reselling it. We've never heard of this company and never gave them permission. Is this legal??

No.  But the costs of dealing with it are huge.

Its certainly a questionable practice but its certainly an oppotunity for you to contact the reseller and work something out with them.  It's moving your product so might want to make some hay out of it.

I recommend that you seek out a local attorney for a more in depth discussion of the matter. I do not recommend that you take any action steps without such a consult. Act quickly because by waiting, you may lose certain rights and remedies available to you.
