The remanufacturing enterprise will direct an ongoing growth plan of enlarging its portfolio of OEM-specification remanufactured components to its North American customers. All reman components are brought back to engineering-approved specifications for the customer. According to Wolma, remanufactured parts offer a lower cost alternative to the customer while meeting the same quality requirements as new components. Components - like brake shoes, axle carriers, manual transmissions, wedge brake actuators, hydraulic brake cylinders, transfer cases, and trailer axles - are remanufactured at the company's 270,000 sq. ft. Plainfield, Ind., manufacturing plant, which employs 220 workers. The manufacturing force is managed in cross-functional teams, which offers a competitive advantage over rebuilders or aftermarket suppliers. Last September, the Indiana facility celebrated key remanufacturing production milestones - its 10 millionth brake shoe and 50,000th axle carrier.
