The ReMaTec brand of international tradeshows has announced the launch of ReMaTec Asia, which will take place from Sept. 24-26, 2019 in Guangzhou, China
Taking place in Guangzhou, ReMaTec Asia has chosen a location in the heart of the automotive industry in China. The event will be co-located with Auto Aftermarket Guangzhou (AAG), the largest exhibition for the automotive aftermarket in South East China with more than 20,000 visitors and 1,300 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 organizer SINOMACHINT. Both organizations established a partnership with RAI Amsterdam, owner of the global ReMaTec brand.
The Chinese remanufacturing infrastructure is being prepared for substantial growth, according to RAI Amsterdam, which owns the ReMaTec brand. 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 percent year over year. Remanufactured parts are a reliable middle ground between expensive original parts on one side and cheap inferior imitation on the other side, according to RAI.
Niels Klarenbeek, director of ReMaTec, said he believes ReMaTec Asia will be a great asset for international remanufacturing organizations looking to enter the Chinese remanufacturing market. “We now see opportunities in the Chinese domestic remanufacturing market because of multiple reasons,” said 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 closer to 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 organize a Remanufacturing Forum, where latest expertise and insights can be shared between remanufacturing executives from all over the globe.
