FIRM merged into APRA Europe

For a very successful and close cooperation for many years, FIRM and APRA Europe joined forces. APRA is the Automotive Parts Remanufacturers Association. By making this step, the associations will be able to offer a higher quality of services to all members and represent a larger share in the market and therefore have a stronger voice towards stakeholders and decision makers.

Together, APRA Europe and FIRM represent a market volume of more than 1,5 billion EUR with 25.000 employees in Europe. This is equivalent to about two thirds of the European remanufacturing industry.
