Autocirc works for a circular transition in the automotive industry. We ensure that used car parts get back on the road again - or that materials and components can be used in completely different products and contexts. By moving from new production to reuse, remanufacturing, repurpose and recycling of car parts, we are making the second-hand market the first choice. A sustainable choice for a smarter automotive industry and a better alternative, also for the next generation.

Autocirc was founded in 2019 and is growing rapidly. Today, the group consists of close to 60 companies with 1000 employees and operates in Sweden, Norway, Finland, the UK, Poland, Germany and France.
