ZF Aftermarket celebrates Global Remanufacturing Day 202114 April 2021
For the fourth year in a row, April 8 was Global Remanufacturing Day, an event organised by international group the Remanufacturing Industries Council to raise the profile of this alternative means of component production that reduces the use of resources.
ZF offers remanufactured parts that are ‘as new’ from 15 remanufacturing locations around the globe, and which are available under its OE quality brand portfolio (including Sachs and TRW). Those components include transmission, clutches, braking, steering and axle systems for commercial vehicles, cars and motorcycles.
Martyn Houghton, ZF senior manager – IAM UK & Ireland – said: “At ZF Aftermarket, remanufacturing is a key part of our business strategy. It’s not just an added extra, it truly encompasses everything which we believe stands for sustainable, efficient new mobility. Because natural resources are limited, we use our knowledge and innovative OE power to make sustainable use of natural raw materials - which is one of the major challenges of the automotive industry – and take responsibility for the future. Never more so than today as we join our partners around the world to mark Global Remanufacturing Day.”
It says that remanufactured goods use as little as half of the material consumed by a new part. It adds: “This figure is particularly high after the end of series production, as remanufacturing offers a significantly cheaper way to source the product than the production of new components”.
Remanufacturing offers up to 90% of energy savings compared with a new part.
