Is it allowed to have multiple listings of same product?

I was searching one of our products on Google and noticed that one of our competitors has the same product come up 5+ different times on the same search right next to one another, and then I searched some other products and found them doing it on other items also. The product in question is compatible with many different model numbers of machines, so each listing has the same product number with a different model number that it is compatible with in its title, but it is the exact same product being sold in each. I was of the understanding that you can't do this and it is considered cheating the system.

Is it allowed or not?
