The European trade fair for remanufacturing has grown 20 percent in exhibitor numbers compared to the last edition of the show. ReMaTec2009 is taking place through June 9. Organizer Amsterdam RAI has signed up 145 companies from 22 countries to present their latest products, services and solutions. More than 50 companies are participating in the show for the first time, the company adds. "Despite the economic downturn, many professionals apparently find it important to make sure they attend Europe's largest and leading trade show on remanufacturing," says Stefan Vernooij of Amsterdam RAI. "In the world of today, with cost savings and attention for the environment growing, remanufacturing is perceived as the responsible way to go." Show organizers say remanufactured parts have two advantages: they save money and they are less harmful to the environment. Vernooij adds: "The fact that remanufacturing has proven to deliver ROI as well, makes it an attractive business to go with. At ReMaTec2009 we offer an insight into the business and it's opportunities."
