turer of braking systems, steering systems, air
compressors, air dryers, and more. The company
offers the complete trifecta of replacement parts:
genuine OE, remanufactured, and all-makes
aftermarket. The company's all-makes parts
offering is available through its ProVia brand,
launched in 2016. ProVia parts are designed to
bridge the gap between genuine and low-end
budget parts.
"A fleet with an older vehicle might not need a part that
will last another 15 years,"
Aon says. "The fleet might be
looking for something that's
a little bit lower-cost and
not necessarily to that original OEM spec. At the end of
the day, the fleet is going to
dictate that to us. Then we
give them the best options
that will provide the best
value for their dollar."

gives us an opportunity to bring a better value to
market while still maintaining the consistency
and specification fleets require."
While remanufactured parts present a lowercost option, Eaton's Bauer says fleets shouldn't
view that as a reflection of inferior product quality. "Remanufactured products can be as good or
better than new parts if the remanufacturer has
good techniques to qualify reclaimed [salvaged]

parts in the operation," Bauer says.
The manufacturing process itself is also
important. John Chalifoux, president and
chief operating officer of MERA, the Motor &
Equipment Manufacturers Association's sustainable manufacturing division, says it's important
to recognize that remanufacturing has the word
manufacturing in it. "If you ever toured the plants

In addition to Rig Tough
aftermarket parts, Rush
Enterprises operates its own
line of remanufactured parts
called Premium Power. Eppes
says the company is primarily focused on engine components at this time since the
engine is one area where
reman can make good financial sense for a fleet.
"Products that include a
large amount of cost and
energy, such as products
with large cast pieces, are
good for remanufacturing,"
Wabco's Aon says. Along with
engines, examples include air
compressors, air dryers, steering gears, and transmissions.
"These things make a lot of
sense because there is still a
lot of life left on the high-dollar components that go into
them," Aon adds.
Founded in 2010, Wabco
Reman Solutions remanufactures a variety of electronics,
mechatronic components,
and conventional mechanical products for both Wabco
and other OEMs. Wabco
remanufactures back to the
original OEM spec. In fact,
they'll also upgrade to the
latest features within that
product line. "Wabco OEM
and Wabco Remanufactured
are functionally and durably
equivalent," Aon says. "This
