Appears to be a trend for this kind of thing nowadays.
I'm just watching someone selling a product on television. They're touting that the company has been going for 100 years +. Checking around I can see the original manufacturer closed in 2005 - so someone has obviously bought the trademark and is selling cheap tat off the back of a recognised/trusted name (not in the case of whoever tried to rip off the C= branding with these phones).
Another one I've seen a lot of is old 'British' watch makers... made in China
