In recent years, the idea of sustainability has permeated all business branches. A resource saving and low-carbon economy is increasingly becoming the focus of attention.
By now climate targets have become important parameters in sustainable corporate strategies. Remanufactured components make an important contribution to improving a company’s environmental balance, especially in the automotive sector. As a result, new opportunities and advantages for OEMs as well as customers arise – and moreover, a positive effect on the environment.
With the same or even better quality, a higher value-added share can be achieved. At the same time, the customer can be provided with cheaper spare parts using less material.
Benefits of Remanufacturing
- Cheaper components with high quality
- Increased resource efficiency
- Independence from component suppliers & in-house value creation
- Improved CO2 balance
Companies face new challenges in the context of remanufacturing
Due to the ongoing legislative changes concerning used components worldwide, REMAN scopes are often unintentionally subject to import/export restrictions. An ongoing law monitoring ensures that both lobbying and appropriate implementation measures can be taken in a timely manner.
Furthermore, from a customer perspective, especially the buyers must be convinced of the remanufactured components’ high quality (consistent quality despite cost advantage).
In the future the REMAN scope will also shift due to the rapidly advancing electrification of vehicles, alternative propulsion technologies, and other trends – such as connectivity & electromobility.
