The UK left the European Union on 31 January 2020. It will continue in transition until 31 December, 2020. During this time the British government are making plans to continue trade with the EU which will come into effect on 1 January, 2021. REMET is committed to the European Investment Casting market, and has been planning for this event since 2016; and is very well prepared for changes that will occur as a result of BREXIT. In spite of the additional distractions of COVID-19 , our supply chain team continue to undergo extensive training in order to best serve the changing market.
Currently there is no tariff impact on our product range due to Brexit within Europe.
- REMET has registered a company in Germany, REMET GmbH. This company is currently being activated to better serve our EU customers and will be fully operational by December.
- REMET will be maintaining high stock levels in order to mitigate any potential disruption; and has tried and tested new supply chain routes directly into it’s EU warehouses.
- REMET materials will continue to be REACh compliant.
- REMET’s capability to reclaim waxes will remain unchanged.
As a measure of the confidence expressed in REMET a number of pan European Casting Groups continue to invest in REMET ‘s superior materials technology and are reassured of our contingency planning over this Brexit transition period.
However, we understand that a number of organisations could be trying to exploit the current situation by spreading unsubstantiated concerns over tariffs, customs duties and trade embargoes. REMET considers this ill-informed scare-mongering as none of these subjects have been mooted by either the European Commission or the UK Government. Should there be any changes then we will keep you informed and most importantly, manage our supply chain accordingly.
I hope your immediate concerns are addressed and enquiries answered. However, if you have any further questions please contact your local territory Manager
