WAI launches ‘Cores4Cash’ green initiative

Date: 15-Oct-2019

WAIglobal UK has launched a new green initiative aimed at taking back core from the automotive aftermarket to place it back into remanufactured product.

The Cores4Cash programme is set to encourage the return of core, seen as a boost for remanufacturing, via a simple returns process that enables motors factors and garages to be rewarded with a cash incentive. 

With the launch of Cores4Cash, an increase in core return from factors and garages is anticipated. A simple returns process has been put in place that involves the free provision of a core bin by WAI, which will be collected free of charge when filled with the specific parts listed. 

Once checked at WAI’s premises, a credit note will be issued within one to two weeks. Accepted product groups under the core scheme include starter motors, alternators, EGR valves, diesel pumps, calipers, turbos, steering pumps, diesel injectors and AC compressors. 

Richard Welland, WAIglobal UK managing director, said: “As remanufacturing is on the rise and the market is growing more buoyant, WAI wanted to promote the benefits reman affords while encouraging sustainability. Our new green initiative is a win-win for all involved, not only by offering factors and garages a cash incentive and helping increase reman capabilities, but also helping with the elimination of landfill space.”
