Singapore's Advanced Remanufacturing and Technology Centre (ARTC) will be moving into its new home later this year. Clean Tech 2 at Cleantech Park in Jurong will consist of 7,200 sq. m. of "ultra-modern laboratories and workshops and state-of-the-art machines and offices." Important contributors to the ATRC's credentials are the founding organisations supporting the private-public sector venture. From the private sector, organisations including IHI, Siemens, Rolls Royce, 3M, ABB, Carl Zeiss and TRUMPF were founding members, with Nanyang Technological University from the public sector. Dr David Low, CEO of ATRC told ReMaTecNews: "Singapore has a long history of maintenance, repair or overhaul within important industries such as aerospace, marine and oil and gas. We believe that this experience provides us with the right credentials for delivering remanufacturing expertise for the benefit of manufacturing companies and the environment".
