manufacturers product, repackaging it under their own label and selling it... with the true manufacturers permission, is odd.
Repackaging is common between manufacturers and distributors but I don't think it is at all common between two rival manufacturers.
A couple of examples:
Cosina has made a lot of photo equipment for Minolta, Vivitar, and Nikon
The Honda Pilot is an Isuzu.
The Geo (NUMMI) cars sold by GM were all Toyota Corollas
The Ford Escape is a Mazda
The Jaguar S-series is a Ford Taurus
The Chrysler Crossfire is a Mercedes
The new Saab Aero is a Subaru
