Following the success of its collaboration with the Automotive Parts Remanufacturers Association (APRA) and excellent results of the first Remanufacturing Day at this year’s Automechanika, the trade fair management and APRA association have decided to continue their partnership in the coming years as well.
APRA is the only global association that represents the interests of automotive remanufacturing companies. It plays a key role in ongoing efforts to achieve a circular economy, because remanufacturing offers tremendous ecological benefits and delivers good value as an alternative to new products in the aftermarket.
Remanufacturing saves millions of tonnes of CO2 equivalent emissions each year, enables CO2 savings of up to 90% and material savings of up to 85%.
Mr Olaf Mußhoff, Director of Automechanika Frankfurt, said, “In a time of climate change and resource scarcity, the importance of the circular economy and remanufacturing are certain to grow. That is why I am particularly pleased that we are continuing our partnership with APRA.”
Dr. Daniel CF Koehler, Chairman of APRA Europe, is pleased that “through the successful and professional cooperation with Automechanika Frankfurt, the topic of remanufacturing will be given a more important role in the automotive aftermarket and the public will also be made more aware of its advantages.”
