The European Commission (EC) has initiated an important call to all APRA Europe members. This invitation shows very clear that the EC is more and more aware of the importance of remanufacturing. APRA Europe attended the kick-off meeting of the EC “Technical Working Group” that relates to best environmental management practice (BEMPs) in the car manufacturing sector. The participation of APRA Europe had the benefit that APRA were able to demonstrate remanufacturing in official documents and projects of the EC which is now preparing corresponding guidelines.
Own market research by wolk after sales experts has also proven the high potential and good perspectives for REMAN products. So company wolk after sales experts is planning a REMAN Market Survey for the European market.
Reman survey for the European market
Wolk after sales experts GmbH, a consultancy for the automotive aftermarket, is planning an extensive survey of the European aftermarket with the focus on the reman segment. The study will analyze the market potential of the main reman products and highlight recent and prospective reman trends for the next years. The project design includes focus groups with garages, telephone and expert interviews with garages, distributors, international / national trading groups, OE manufacturers and remanufacturers. The research will be concentrated on countries like France, UK, Italy, Poland and the Netherlands, but the final selection of countries and product groups to be covered will be done with the sponsors of this market survey. Due to the considerable costs involved, wolk after sales experts GmbH is looking for industry partners to invest in this unique project, Sponsors will receive all detailed results and after a hold-on period of minimum nine months the project can be re-financed by re-selling country or region reports.
Partners of the study are the international automotive remanufacturing associations: APRA (Automotive Parts Remanufacturers Association), FIRM (International Federation of Engine Remanufacturers and Rebuilders) and CLEPA (European Association of Automotive Suppliers). Additionally Amsterdam RAI, exhibitor of the ReMaTec fair in Amsterdam, will support the project.
