RAI Amsterdam launches a new Rematec exhibition in China
Held in Guangzhou, the heart of China’s automotive industry and emerging remanufacturing hub.
Amsterdam - 25 September 2018 - The launch of trade show ReMaTec Asia, 11 - 13 October 2019 in Guangzhou, China, is a new addition of the expanding brand portfolio of ReMaTec. Located in Guangzhou, ReMaTec Asia chooses a location in the heart of the automotive industry. The event will be co-located with Auto Aftermarket Guangzhou (AAG), the largest exhibition for automotive aftermarket in South East China with 20.000+ visitors and 1300 exhibitors.
During a press conference at AAG 2018 in Guangzhou, RAI has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with The Remanufacture Committee of China Association of Automobile Manufacturers (CPRA) and the leading Chinese exhibition organiser SINOMACHINT. Both organisations established a partnership with RAI Amsterdam, owner of the global ReMaTec brand.
The Chinese remanufacturing infrastructure is being prepared for a substantial growth. There are an estimated 93.2 million passenger vehicles in China that are out of warranty. New sales keeps rising as Chinese GDP has been advancing 6,7% year on year. Remanufactured parts are a reliable middle way between expensive original parts on one side and cheap inferior imitation on the other side.
Niels Klarenbeek, Director of ReMaTec, believes ReMaTec Asia will be a great asset for international remanufacturing organisations looking to enter the Chinese remanufacturing market. “We now see opportunities in the Chinese domestic remanufacturing market because of multiple reasons”, says Klarenbeek. “Sustainability is taken seriously by the Central Government. There have been substantial investments in remanufacturing zones like Lingang (Shanghai area), Wuzhou (Guangxi Province), Hejian (Hebei Province) and of course Guangzhou (Guangdong Province). As the domestic remanufacturing industry is getting towards maturity, there will be a vast demand for cleaning-, machining and diagnostic equipment, know-how and core management solutions. These are clear opportunities for the ReMaTec customer base in Europe and North America.”
In addition to the trade show, RAI, CRPA and SINOMACHINT will jointly organise a Remanufacturing Forum, where latest experitse and insights can be shared between remanufacturing executives from all over the globe.
