Global remanufacturing benchmark - part five

Tuesday, 16 June 2020

Although the world looks different in 2020, Rematec and Kemény Boehme & Company (KBC) regard remanufacturing to be an important instrument of after-sales. In the second edition of the exclusive Global Remanufacturing Benchmark (GRB), both organisations have gained insights into remanufacturing trends, developments and challenges. The survey was conducted before and during Rematec Amsterdam (June 2019) and Rematec Asia in Guangzhou, China (October 2019), which allows us to take a closer look at the situation in the European and Asian markets before Covid-19 shook the world. We’ll have a series of articles about industry players and challenges, markets, products and processes, core management, quality and marketing & sales. Today part 5: Quality.


There are different ways to guarantee quality to the customer. While the one- year warranty is the most frequently chosen solution (67%), some remanufacturers also offer more than 2-years warranty (8%) or waive it completely (8%). (See figure 1).

To ensure the technical functionality of the remanufactured products, responsibility, there are defined responsibilities within the remanufacturing companies. In this context, various functions and departments are responsible for technical release of remanufactured parts, most commonly the quality department (29%) and / or the after sales department (26%). (See figure 2).
