Rematec brings remanufacturing
professionals together


RAI Amsterdam

For over 100 years, RAI Amsterdam Exhibitions has been a skilled matchmaker between visitors and exhibitors. Its portfolio of A-list brands is managed by dedicated teams of professionals. Supported by a global network of offices and agencies, RAI Amsterdam organises over 25 consumer and trade exhibitions each year for the Dutch and international markets. In addition, its international exhibitions have regional spin-offs in China, the US, Poland, India, Mexico and Turkey. No matter where the exhibitions take place, RAI Amsterdam focuses on generating and maintaining new and existing business for its exhibitors, visitors, sponsors and partners.


Rematec, is the world’s largest biannual remanufacturing show. It is located in Amsterdam, the Netherlands and organised by RAI Amsterdam. The exhibition is supported by the leading trade organisations APRA (Auto Parts Remanufacturers Association) and FIRM (Federation of Engine Manufacturers and Rebuilders).



APRA (Automotive Parts Remanufacturers Association) 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, and 130 in Europe, 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.
