News: Remanufactured parts that cost 20-40% less than new
Missouri farmers benefit from local remanufacture facility
Wednesday, 16th September 2015
Springfield Remanufacturing Corporation (SRC) and Case New Holland Industrial (CNH) have joined forces to enable users of large equipment in Missouri - such as the farming community - to remanufacture parts that cost 20-40% less than new components.
The two companies say that their approach at the Springfield, Missouri plant is not just to remanufacture parts from their 'point of failure', but to ensure that the components are 'like new' from core. According to an article in ReMaTec News, the companies stated: "The assurance of quality allows the plant to place a two-year warranty on the engines that it produces and a one-year warranty on everything else."
Established in 2009, the plant has grown to a 26,000 sq.m. facility which includes remanufacturing operations, a technical call centre and a remanufactured part distribution centre. The workforce has expanded from nine in the early days to 250 in 2015, and last year produced revenue of more than $100 million.
