„As remanufacturing has been one of the major thrusts of my professional live, I am pleased to recommend “European Remanufacturing of Heavy Duty Components” which provides excellent practical information from some of the professional in the field. As the world is recognizing the critical path of moving to more sustainable manufacturing practices, the importance of remanufacturing cannot be overlooked, and this book should be very good reading.”
Nabil Nasr, Ph.D. Associate Provost for Academic Affairs & Director, Golisano Institute for Sustainability Rochester Institute of Technology Rochester NY USA

“This book will be of great interest for remanufacturers mastering the know-how of heavy duty remanufacturing – which accounted for a considerable percentage of increase in the European remanufacturing market in recent years. Anyone understanding what remanufacturing development is and how it functions to bridge the technologies of today with tomorrow will see the positive impact on sustainability on our planet.”
Prof. Sheng Zhu, Director National Key Laboratory for Remanufacturing, Beijing, China

“When analyzing the automotive aftermarket we focus most of the time on passenger cars. It is hard to get qualified data about the Heavy Duty aftermarket which is a very important market segment for remanufactured products. Fernand and his team of co-authors did a great job by highlighting business opportunities for his market segment.”
Peter Bartel, Chairman of the European Division of APRA (Automotive Parts Remanufacturers Association)

Why editing a book?
You may think there are so many books around why another book? However if you look around and look for books about automotive remanufacturing I bet you, you will not find many if at all! Your next question may then be, but about what exactly is the book I have edited? Remanufacturing new technologies are in my view important, therefore I was very pleased and very fortunate to convince Stefan Freiberger and Alexander Nagel to write about the present and future of electronic car networking systems and Leon Kleine Staarman and Stef de Winter to write about car electronics. Their mission was to try to “demystify” these subjects! They have done an excellent job! Equally important for remanufacturers   are strategic subjects. I was very lucky to find in this context, experts like Daniel Köhler to explain how Remanufacturing supply chains help to save CO2 emissions and Edwin Tom to propose remanufacturing to extend l
