Roadlink champions UK remanufacturing in Frankfurt

Roadlink International says UK remanufacturing is still the “envy of the world” following its successful attendance at Automechanika Frankfurt.
The leading commercial vehicle parts supplier, exhibiting as part of the SMMT’s ‘Business is Great’ pavilion in Hall 5.1, promoted its comprehensive range of new and remanufactured braking solutions, including calipers, brake shoes, pads, discs and drums, as well as a market-leading range of UK manufactured Bryden brake shoe riveting machines to export customers.

Roadlink has continued to invest in its CV brake caliper manufacturing facility in the UK and explained to visitors the efficiency and diligence that goes into the remanufacturing process, detailing each step including: Examining the caliper core; stripping and washing the core components, checking for quality, damage and excessive wear to all usable components; building the caliper with new OE quality parts; and finally extensive testing to ensure quality.

Remanufacturing in the UK currently contributes approximately £4.3billion to the UK economy with this figure expected to grow dramatically thanks to further investment. Remanufacturing is not only good for the environment through the reduction of CO2 emissions but reduces raw material and energy consumption.

Keith Sedgley, Roadlink joint managing director, said: “It’s clear, from the numerous conversations and visits to our stand at Frankfurt, that UK remanufacturing remains the “envy of the world” and that our commitment to quality is much admired. It also adds further confidence to our growing UK customer base, who benefit from our braking solutions every day.”

Also unveiled at Automechanika Frankfurt was the new Roadlink website at www.roadlink-international.com.

The website is designed to keep customers up to date with the supplier’s latest activity and information, as well as providing them with exclusive access to its online catalogue making it easier to find the correct parts.
