Exactly,and you can buy components from these companies directly.They come in a different box,but they are one and the same.

If you order an aftermarket Valeo oil filter for a Peugeot,you get a genuine filter in a Valeo box.Partco are Unipart dealers,and in times gone by if you ordered any Rover parts from them they would be genuine parts with different part numbers.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
