Remanufacturing forum to be in Shanghai

William Gager, president of the Automotive Parts Remanufacturers Association (APRA) stated that the “International Remanufacturing Forum” will be held on December 11-12, 2013 in Shanghai, China. APRA has joined with Automechanika Shanghai and China Recycling Remanufacture Association as the co-organizers of this International Remanufacturing Forum that will be held during the Automechanika Shanghai.

Gager said, “APRA is pleased with the strong support of our Forum and the Remanufacturing Pavilion within the exposition by the Automechanika Shanghai Team. This is a win-win for both organizers as we both work toward encouraging more remanufacturing in China for that country’s own growing demands for environmentally friendly and reasonably priced products. China’s vehicle population is about 100 million and growing rapidly as they now produce more vehicles than the U.S.” Gager added, “The natural next step will be a growing remanufacturing industry within China as their vehicle population ages.”
