How do you explain remanufacturing, in your own words? Remanufacturing is a great way of optimising the earth’s finite resources and is a cost effective solution for replacing products that have a limited life. The process of remanufacturing involves complete disassembly of the product, replacement of all wearing parts and any parts that have an inherent design fault, reassembly and testing to at least original equipment standards. The remanufactured product can actually end up being superior to the original item.
What remanufacturing is your company involved in? Rotating electrics, cv joints, driveshafts, calipers
How has working with SIR helped you? By raising the profile of remanufacturing.
What would you say to a company interested in getting involved in remanufacturing? Quality is critical and investment has to be made in processes and, importantly, in testing components and the final product.
