Rochester, UK

As you are aware, the UK left the EU in 2020. There has been an extended period to facilitate transition from a member state to “third country” status.

At Customers’ request, in 2018 REMET® UK took advantage of this period by forming a new EU based organisation to provide a focus for European transactions.  REMET® GmbH is fully founded and properly constituted under German Law in the city of Munich and is registered under number HRB249706.

REMET® GmbH  is a vital part of the REMET® family and allows us to maintain a high level of service for our European customers.  Following the end of the UK / EU transition agreement at the end of this year, REMET is pleased to offer continuity of service to our valued customers.

Duties and / or tariffs have been discussed as a result of the UK Leaving the EU.  REMET® has noted that all materials shipped to EU Customers are either already manufactured in the EU, do not have any applicable duty, or are otherwise in free circulation in the EU. Remet does not expect duties and tariffs to affect its European customers.

We have produced a Data Pack which is attached to allow you to familiarise yourself with this new organisation. Please contact your usual Territory manager to receive a copy and discuss how REMET® GmbH can help serve you.

REMET® have also answered some of our frequently asked questions, below. Please feel to contact us if you have specific questions or require further clarification.

Thank you for working with REMET, we are all very excited by the inauguration of REMET® GmbH and we look forward to continuing to serve you over the coming years.

Best regards

Bob Brown
