What makes our association strong

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.

In 2021 APRA Europe merged with FIRM  

Founded in 1958 in Vienna, FIRM is the European umbrella organisation representing the interests of engine remanufacturers and rebuilders. 10 national trade associations representing more than 1000 engine remanufacturers and rebuilders are members of FIRM.

Based in Brussels, FIRM is a recognised discussion partner of the European Institutions, fellow associations across the world (AERA, APRA, NZERA etc.) and other international & European trade federations of automotive sectors.
