We are pleased to announce that Apena-Remont joined our service network in 2020! 

Our network is expanding with a new service and spare parts agent in Poland


Poland is a strong and important market for REP. 

The company APENA-REMONT was founded more than 22 years ago and is located in Bielsko-Biala. They are specialized in repairs and maintenance of machines and industrial equipment.

It is very important to offer a local service organization to our customers to reduce response and travelling times, especially during the COVID19 pandemic, when travelling between countries is much more difficult. 

Maintaining and developing local representation and expertise has always been part of REP's policy and we will continue our efforts to expand our network and ensure a top class service everywhere.


Welcome to Apena-Remont Sp. z o.o. !

A few words from Jim Wirtz, our new North-American President:

" We have finalized the move to our new North American Headquarters in Kodak TN. This move has been in an effort to serve our customer base from a more strategically located ‘center’ of the industry and as emerging markets gravitate to a more southerly locale. This places REP Corporation into a further leadership role in remaining responsive, agile and accessible.
Our ability to deliver parts, service and operate all of our administrative functions and keep an operational Sales Showroom will ensure REP stays in the forefront of our new and existing clients planning."
