PartCycle tapped as North American representative for industry-leading recycled auto parts Marketplace, innovative software development, and marketing efforts.
FLORENCE, Ala. (Sept. 5, 2017)—PartCycle Technologies announces it’s participation at the 2017 International Roundtable on Automotive Recycling (IRT), hosted by the Automotive Recyclers of Canada (ARC) and the Automotive Recyclers Association (ARA), in the internationally famous border city of Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada, Sept. 6-8, 2017.
Held every 18 months, IRT brings together leading international automotive recycler associations, industry officials, guest speakers and local auto recyclers to discuss the global auto recycling industry. PartCycle Technologies is proud to represent the United States at the 9th IRT, and present on the future of e-commerce for the industry—specifically its niche-specific Marketplace, PartCycle.com—and showcase its marketing efforts for promoting the recycled automotive industry.
“With Canada and the US as the host countries, we are working to present North America as an industry-leader in technology, innovation, and public awareness,” says Steve Fletcher, ARC Managing Director and IRT organizer. “When developing this year’s agenda, because of its online marketplace and marketing acumen, PartCycle was an obvious choice to present the most advanced technology for selling recycled parts online, and promoting public awareness for the industry.”
IRT’s have been a catalyst for global automotive recyclers to share information about emerging technical and regulatory trends, business opportunities, and to highlight local and industry best practices. Following the 7th IRT in Kushiro, Japan, IRT members and participating organizations defined the major tenets of the industry’s collective direction through the Kushiro Declaration, including: environmental standards and best practice, public awareness, government engagement, manufacturer support, auto recycling industry stewardship, education and training, and research information sharing.
PartCycle Technologies’ Co-Founder Andy Alonso, who will be presenting, feels IRT helps to guide the international industry forward and advance the overall goals of each participating organization.
“We are thrilled with the opportunity to present and participate in this year’s IRT,” says Alonso. “IRT is a powerful force for the industry, and we are excited to represent the U.S. and North America as leaders in software development and public awareness for the recycled auto parts industry.”
