POSITIVE IMPACTS OF REMANUFACTURING

ENVIRONMENT

Remanufacturing saves millions of tons of CO2 equivalent emissions, 85% of raw materials, 55% of energy compared with new production.

EMPLOYMENT

Remanufacturing offers much more jobs than the respective new parts production as it is more labor-intensive.

SAFETY

Remanufactured parts come with full warranty and product liability because they fulfill equivalent functions as new parts.

ECONOMY

Remanufactured parts offer best value for money with comparable quality and equivalent functions as new parts.

ABOUT APRA EUROPE

APRA is the only global association that has been representing the interests of automotive remanufacturing companies since 1941. APRA’s Europe Middle East Africa division (EMEA) is well-known as APRA Europe and based in Brussels, Belgium. The association’s approx. 600 members worldwide are primarily tier 1 suppliers and independent remanufacturers as well as core brokers. Together with FIRM, which merged into APRA Europe, we now represent approx. two-thirds of all employees in the European automotive remanufacturing industry.

APRA Europe promotes remanufacturing as an integral part of the circular economy and represents the interests of the industry, including free trade, an independent aftermarket and legal certainty. Remanufacturing is the highest form of recycling and should therefore be actively promoted by politicians, law giving institutions and companies. Members benefit from the organization’s close integration with other industry associations, receiving guidance and support for business matters. APRA Europe also holds its own conferences and other events to bring together supply and demand – for the benefit of each. APRA is the Voice of Remanufacturing since 1941.

We represent and support:

– Remanufacturers
– Component Manufacturers
– Car Manufacturers
– Core Dealers
– Wholesalers
– Scientific Research Institutions
– Consultants & Services

 
In 2021, APRA Europe merged with FIRM, the International Federation of Engine Remanufacturers.
