We connect,
support and defend.

As an international association and cluster network APRA Europe connects the automotive remanufacturing industry while supporting its members and
defending the independent aftermarket as the Voice of Remanufacturing.

We CONNECT

APRA Europe connects its members and the automotive remanufacturing industry.

How we do that:

  • we organize and support remanufacturing cluster events
    (e.g. APRA European Symposium, Rematec 
    exhibition, Automechanika Frankfurt, World Remanufacturing Summit)

  • we provide a network (e.g. through our events, working groups)

  • we connect remanufacturing experts worldwide
    (know-how transfer, best-practice, technology transfer)

  • we connect the whole remanufacturing supply chain

We SUPPORT

APRA Europe supports its members as well as the automotive remanufacturing industry.

How we do that:

  • we provide a network of remanufacturing professionals (e.g. remanufactures, core dealers, suppliers, wholesalers, universities, lawyers)

  • we give guidance and advice (e.g. through our expert network, webinars, manuals, position papers, speeches)

  • we inform about business opportunities and future technology
    (e.g. e-mobility, electrification, telematics, emerging markets, automation, industry 4.0)

  • we give information on complex legal aspects of remanufacturing (e.g. trademarks, branding, liability, patents, property, import/export)

  • we work with ambassadors for each country (e.g. support in national language, support on inner country specifications)

We DEFEND

APRA Europe defends the independent aftermarket for its members and the automotive remanufacturing industry.

How we do that:

  • we communicate benefits of remanufacturing (e.g. quality, reliability, ecology, economy, integrity, professionalism)

  • we promote publicly the remanufacturing industry (e.g. research projects, publications, public speeches, ISO and DIN standards)

  • we protect the industry and the public from misleading information
    (e.g. position papers, counter statements, lobbying)

  • we influence actively the law giving institutions and other politicians (e.g. UN regulation working groups, remanufacturing and core definitions, free trade initiatives)

  • we shape a predictable business environment for remanufacturing (e.g. legal certainty, quality criteria for cores and finished products, customer base)
