BORG Automotive Group to showcase circular economy and innovative remanufactured solutions at Rematec Amsterdam

Tuesday, 9 May 2023

BORG Automotive Group, Europe's largest independent automotive spare parts remanufacturer, is set to showcase its comprehensive range of remanufactured products at the upcoming Rematec Amsterdam show in June.

With more than 40 years of experience, the company is a leader in the circular economy, significantly reducing CO2 emissions, energy consumption and raw material usage through its remanufacturing processes. The group consists of the distribution companies BORG Automotive Reman, Car Parts Industries and SBS Automotive. BORG Automotive Reman delivers to the Independent After Market, and CPI delivers to the OE market. Alongside that, SBS is the company’s Danish trading company that carries wear parts with a focus on friction for the aftermarket.

At the Rematec Amsterdam exhibition, BORG Automotive Group aims to achieve several goals, including presenting its extensive range of remanufactured automotive parts. The company offers eight different product groups, including starters, alternators, turbochargers, brake calipers, AC compressors, EGR valves, steering racks and steering pumps, making it a one-stop-shop for customers.

By showcasing its product lines and technologies, BORG Automotive Group intends to emphasize the environmental benefits of remanufacturing and its commitment to quality.

In addition to showcasing its products, BORG Automotive Group seeks to leverage networking and collaboration opportunities during the exhibition. The company is looking to engage with prospective clients and industry stakeholders, as well as explore potential partnerships, product launches, and strategic initiatives. By attending the Rematec Amsterdam show, BORG Automotive Group also hopes to gain insights into critical industry trends and address any challenges or concerns in the remanufacturing industry.

BORG Automotive Group prides itself on its commitment to customer service, offering market analysis, data analysis, gap analysis, and ranking lists to support customers in the best possible way. The company's customer service team consists of multilingual, competent individuals working closely together across borders to provide seamless and personal customer experiences.

The company's circular process begins with distributors returning defective spare parts to either BORG Automotive Reman or Car Parts Industries, which are then remanufactured to bring new life to the parts. These remanufactured spare parts are then sold to distribution links and eventually reach consumers through garages, extending the life cycle of the product and contributing to a circular economy.

In celebration of Earth Day 2023, the company recently emphasized the significant environmental impact of choosing remanufactured automotive parts over newly produced spare parts. The company reported that remanufacturing starters saves 88 percent of raw materials, while remanufacturing turbochargers saves 98 percent. Additionally, energy consumption is reduced by 38 percent, and CO2 emissions decrease by about 40 percent on average.

Compared to the production of a new spare part, remanufacturing saves a considerable amount of energy and valuable raw materials, in particular metals

says Rune Avnsted, Sales Director at BORG Automotive Reman. “From the individual perspective, this may only be a small contribution to climate protection and resource conservation, but collectively, remanufacturers, retailers and workshops can make a noticeable difference and ensure that valuable resources are not wasted.”

BORG Automotive Group's commitment to sustainability was recognized in 2022 when it secured a "bronze" rating from Ecovadis, the world's largest provider of sustainability ratings. The company achieved its best rating in the environmental category, with particular strengths in reducing raw material and water consumption, chemical use, energy use, greenhouse gas emissions and waste production.

“The current rating shows that we are on the right track in terms of corporate social responsibility and sustainability. We are very pleased with the bronze status, but we do not take it as an opportunity to rest on our laurels,” says Sten Højland, Director of Compliance at BORG Automotive Group. “Our aspiration for ourselves is to constantly improve – and we still have some way to go before we reach silver or gold.”

BORG Automotive Group aims to continuously improve its sustainability efforts and is working towards achieving silver or gold status in the future.

By participating in the Rematec Amsterdam show, BORG Automotive Group aims to reinforce its position as a leader in remanufactured automotive parts and demonstrate its commitment to sustainability, innovation, and customer service.
