East meets west
The first ever Rematec Asia show is nearly here: Guangzhou in China will host the event, which runs from 11-13 October – and it promises to offer something for everyone in remanufacturing.
The pace of China’s economic growth has meant that the car sales in the country have increased enormously. This is, of course, of great interest to remanufacturers – but there are other factors which make the Chinese market attractive: after two years the warranty of a car expires - and after five years the demand of maintenance appears. In 2015, a total fleet of 93.2 million cars ran out of warranty. In the coming years the demand for auto parts will increase, and this is a major opportunity for the reman sector.
In October, Rematec will open its doors in Guangzhou, China for the first Rematec Asia show. The perfect opportunity to make contacts and discover trends, there will be over 95 exhibitors (around 15 of which are international) exhibiting their reman products and capabilities at the Guangzhou Poly World Trade Center. Rematec Asia is to be co-located with Auto Aftermarket Guangzhou (AAG), an established aftermarket trade show with over 20,000 Chinese aftermarket professionals as visitors.
As well as the opportunity to see a variety of reman products and services, visitors will be able to find out about the latest trends in remanufacturing, including on all-important policy developments, as Rematec Asia is to host a large Remanufacturing Forum. This high level gathering, which features a simultaneous translation service, will attract officials and guests from China’s central government, the National Development and Reform Commission and the National Key Laboratory for Remanufacturing, the Beijing/Heijan National Remanufacturing excellence centre. Chinese vehicle manufacturers (such as SAIC Motor, Donfeng, FAW, Geely, Bejijng Automotive Group, Btrilliance Automotive, Guangzhou Automobile Group, Great Wall and BYD) will send their aftermarket branches to Rematec Asia to learn about the benefits of remanufacturing.
