With a view to better sustainability, remanufacturing is becoming increasingly important. Horizont 2020", a European programme to promote research and innovation, highlights remanufacturing as an important instrument for limiting energy consumption, emissions and waste flows at international level.
In the course of these current social trends, the remanufacturing industry in the automotive and heavy industry has developed at a rapid pace worldwide and the demand for refurbished products as a high-quality and cost-reducing alternative to new components is growing all the time.
This was also reflected in the exhibition space at ReMaTec: 225 exhibitors from all over the world presented themselves to trade visitors in two exhibition halls in the Amsterdam Exhibition Centre from 14 to 16 June 2015 on an exhibition area of 10,000 m2. The number of exhibitors, including numerous first-time exhibitors, increased by 20 % compared to the previous fair.
With participants from over 20 countries, ReMaTec has become an image of the international remanufacturing industry and is regarded as the leading trade fair for the remanufacturing industry. The most important groups of visitors are car manufacturers and importers as well as remanufacturing companies and their suppliers.
The worldwide importance of ReMaTec is also demonstrated by the leading trade associations APRA (Auto Parts Remanufacturers Association) and FIRM (Federation of Engine Remanufacturers), which are among the official sponsors of the fair.
With our participation as an exhibitor and our innovative Flowbench product line we presented our vision, our competence and our know-how both from practice and from scientific research in the field of turbocharger remanufacturing, combined with the latest technologies from mechanical engineering. The opportunity to test our products for the automotive industry and to convince ourselves of our market-leading implementation of ideas aroused great interest and lively exchange among many repair specialists. This means that we have achieved sustained success both at the trade fair and in the B2B contacts we have established.
