Fleet Maintenance - 37

REMAN, REBUILD, REPLACE
introductions that includes a design for remanufacturing discipline. This allows fleets to operate their vehicles longer and more efficiently
while keeping employees focused and trained
on the core business of servicing customers.

Benefits beyond the business

85 percent of energy, water, and material use
compared to a newly manufactured product. And the trend has lead John Chalifoux,
president of MERA - the Association for
Sustainable Manufacturing, to recently
suggest an update to the three "Rs" of the
environment to now say "Reduce. Reuse.
Reman. Recycle."
For a fleet, remanufactured products offer a

solution that is equal to or better than new at
a substantial cost savings. Additionally, fleets
save resources when buying a ready-assembled remanufactured product versus repairing
in-house. Fleets can help support remanufacturing by demanding MERA-certified remanufactured products from reputable sources
while also helping a smooth flow of cores back
to their suppliers.

Beyond product benefits, jobs, energy, and
waste savings related to
remanufacturing are substantial and measurable.
For example, one air disc
brake (ADB) manufacturer
recently announced over 40
million of their ADB calipers
are on the road worldwide
currently. The amount of
energy used to create those
potential ADB cores is equivalent to powering 1.5 million
U.S. homes for one year. A
fuel injector remanufacturer
in Chicago advertises that
its process on one product
line saves enough energy to
power 50,000 U.S. homes for
one year.
Additionally, remanufacturing renews the life of a
core several times before
it ends up in a landfill or a
recycling station. Likewise,
fleets that prioritize remanufactured products can quantify their positive contribution
to the environment and, as
a result, private and public

ing technologies will allow
remanufacturers to reuse an
increasing percentage of the
core, giving remanufacturers a
competitive edge when taking
advantage of the new tools
available. As fleets demand
more remanufactured products, technology will evolve to
add more value to an already
valuable product.
Quality and reliability will
always reign supreme. That's
why remanufactured products must be, at minimum,
on par in quality and performance with new products
to offer the maximum benefits to fleets, the companies
that produce them, and the
environment.
According to the Remanufacturing Industries Council, remanufacturing can save
