Rematec was represented during a key European trade visit to China. Niels Klarenbeek, director remanufacturing and refurbishment at Rematec News publisher RAI Amsterdam, gave a presentation on the Rematec brand during a conference at last month’s Intelligent Manufacturing & Remanufacturing China Mission. Other presentations were from the China Association of Circular Economy and from the European Remanufacturing Council (CER) – both organisations also signed a memorandum of understanding with one another. The visit to Beijing and to the reman demonstration area at Hejian, in Hebei province, was attended by delegates from the European Union including representatives from Lexmark and IBM. Klarenbeek said: “It was an excellent opportunity to get under the skin of this growing reman market.” The purpose of the visit was to identify synergies and collaboration opportunities between the UK and China in the field of intelligent manufacturing and to understand policies such as the ambitious industrial strategy Made in China 2025.
