Is this a brand name & is it only common to the Americas?

Just asking, because it's mentioned in the Body-Fixer equipment list under Laser Scalpel, but I'm playing character only local to Rifts Japan and that place is apparently really isolated from the rest of the world.

On Page 115 of the Rifts japan book they have in big letters....

H-BRAND
The only other high tech weapons manufacturer of note on the entire island chain is a small company nestled among the independent kingdom of Otomo. it's products are known simply as H-Brand
weapons. Some are original designs, but most are "Knock-offs" of ArmaTech and foreign weapons acquired from occasional visitors and seafarers. In addition to mega-damage weapons and armour, H-Brand also produces a large number of semi-automatic and automatic S.D.C. weapons and speciality items like high-tech (M.D. and S.D.C.) bows, arrows, VIBRO-WEAPONS and explosives. It's products are of lower quality than ArmaTech, but are generally good, reliable items.

ODDS & ENDS

All Armatech brand weapons
have the prefix "AT" and are of superior quality.

Most, but not all H-Brand weapons have the prefix "H", are of fair to good quality, and are mainly knock-offs of ArmaTech weapons.....etc.

Wilks doesn't even get mention there. So, H-Brand must be the label I'm looking for.

I sometimes like to imagine they call their tiny mall outlet shops "The Wilk's Booth"
