Dedicated team with OE background and project management skills:
Our success is made by people. We focus a lot on the competences and qualities of our people, who possess all our true values; Responsibility, Competence, Interdependency, Transparency and Continuous Improvement. Our experienced team combines the best of both IAM and OE worlds and offer you creativity, innovation and professionalism in all our interactions with you. We set up cross functional teams made of specialists of different disciplines from engineering to IT and from sales to purchasing and product management who are there to cooperate with you and successfully implement your remanufacturing project. Each of our customers have a singular approach to logistic set up, quality validation, pricing processes, IT, etc. leading to specific requirements. At CPI, flexibility is the key. We cannot systematically change our set up but we definitely do our very best to adapt in the best way to our customers’ requirements.
Close partnering on product management:
Our product management specialists play an essential role in the active support to our customers. Such support materialises through continuous interactions, product- and technical training for you and your sales team, support in catalogue and illustrations, tailor made fitting instructions, periodical New To Range suggestions, program list gap coverage based on market and carpark statistics by country, technical data sheets and drawings, data management, and product accessories solutions. Our product management is here to ease and relieve your work on product management, so you can concentrate and focus on offering the best remanufacturing experience to your customers.
Quality management & environment:
By choosing the remanufacturing solution of CPI, you go for an economical, ecological and qualitative solution. Most of our customers are looking to offer the automotive aftermarket a comprehensive program of replacement parts under their own label at the right price and the perfect quality. On top of the program coverage, the decision to go for remanufacturing is strategically motivated by multiple advantages ranging from financial factors to environmental factors and quality requirements. Indeed, we offer you a fully renovated OE part that has the same functionality than a new OE part and with a warranty of 2 years. Validating a product is an engineering challenge. We take our responsibility throughout the validation process and work closely with our partner to successfully achieve it. Remanufacturing is an eco-friendly solution that will help you, our customer, supporting your CO2 reduction program. It also gives you the guarantee of the availability of OE equivalent replacement spare parts for 15 years after end of vehicle production or more. For some of you, remanufactured parts from CPI is the perfect solution to fulfil this contractual obligation.
IT & logistic:
Our IT & logistics colleagues are forming a strong backbone in our organisation to support our target to provide the best service to our customers.
CPI is having one of the largest core warehouses in Europe with 1 million cores stored. We work closely with major logistics partners who support our incoming and outgoing flow of parts. Regarding IT, we have an advanced network of IT professionals, both internal and external, focussing on IT integration within the group or with our partners and always working on IT optimisation projects.
We can proudly say that our success is also thanks to their professionalism and their continuous adaptation to the demanding requirements in the automotive remanufacturing environment.
Research & development:
Our reverse engineering R&D centres are located in each production facility to ensure the development of solutions adapted to production constraints. We put a virtue into developing efficient remanufacturing processes, such as custom made components testing equipment, development of components repairing methods, electronic discharge protected area set up, use of 3D printing for critical plastic parts and communication bus decoding (Flexray, CAN, LIN), that will ensure the optimal quality of our products.
We are flexible in the development and specification of processes as well as check points in cooperation with you, our customer. We have dedicated laboratories in our factories used by our R&D engineers for their activities. Our R&D also cooperate closely with approved external laboratories.
Our qualified R&D employees offer a highly valuable support.
