Bosch is this month promoting the benefits of its eXchange products, claiming outstanding an price-performance ratio while also protect the environment.
The Bosch eXchange program for starters and alternators is an ideal solution for value-based vehicle repairs.
A Bosch spokesperson said: “Although some market players have been reducing their involvement with remanufacturing, Bosch focuses even more on Bosch eXchange to offer car and commercial vehicle workshops the associated benefits.
“These benefits include the extensive exchange program of starters and
alternators from various manufacturers that is continually being updated and further developed to meet the needs of workshops and their customers.
“It includes a high proportion of remanufactured products and can be supplemented with new products if necessary to ensure a high degree of market coverage and supply availability.”
The exchange products are treated according to the same standards as original parts and have to pass stringent functional and quality tests.
This ensures high quality and reliability at lower prices while still providing the same warranty as in the new parts program.
Featuring a price advantage of up to 30 per cent in comparison with comparable products from new parts programs, workshops can thus offer their customers attractive repair solutions based on the current vehicle value.
The exchange program is also a real alternative in terms of protecting the
environment and climate.
By remanufacturing starters and alternators, Bosch saved around 2,700 tons of different metals in 2019.
This translates into a CO₂ equivalent (CO₂e) of approximately 7,400 tons.
This amount approximately would have been emitted by producing
new metal parts from scratch.
It would take an entire forest of around 590,000 beech trees to absorb the CO₂e.
