UK Remanufacturing Championed in Frankfurt

Following the UK’s successful attendance at Automechanika Frankfurt, Roadlink International said the country’s remanufacturing sector is still the “envy of the world”.

“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,” said Keith Sedgley, Roadlink joint managing director.

The leading commercial vehicle parts supplier, Roadlink International, exhibited as part of the SMMT’s ‘Business is Great’ pavilion in Hall 5.1, promoting its comprehensive range of new and remanufactured braking solutions, such as 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.

With continuous investment in its CV brake caliper manufacturing facility in the UK, Roadlink 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 £4.3 billion 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.

Also unveiled at Automechanika Frankfurt was the new Roadlink website at

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.
