Greg Folley, Caterpillar Vice President, responsible for the remanufacturing & components division said:"Our investment here is another illustration of Caterpillar's commitment to customers and sustainable development in Asia. "Together with our remanufacturing facility in Shanghai, China, we now provide an unmatched combination of availability, cost and regional support for our Asia-Pacific customers". In announcing the opening of the new facility, Folley said Caterpillar's remanufacturing operations returned end-of-life components to their original "same-as-when-new" condition in terms of reliability, durability and performance. Remanufacturing reduces waste, minimises the need for raw materials to produce new parts and supports Caterpillar's value proposition of providing customers with the lowest life cycle cost over the life of a product. The 20,000 square meter building will serve as the regional source for remanufactured major components for large off-highway trucks and other mining equipment, including engines, transmissions, final drives and torque converters.
