A significant, but largely un-quantified, amount of remanufacture occurs within OEMs, and is highly targeted to the warranty period. Many OEMs are multi-nationals, manufacturing and trading globally and will elect to base their operations in the most economically advantageous locations. Increasingly this is not the UK, but rather Eastern Europe and the Far East. However, the large scales of operation also mean that fringe activities of which remanufacturing could be considered one are rejected as being non-core. There are thus opportunities for quality remanufacturers to pick up on local or regional opportunities. This report was first published in 2005 but reissued in 2009.
