This is the eighth webinar in the series where RIC will explore different sectors of the remanufacturing industry. Attendees will gain insight into other sectors and learn how they are similar to, and different from, their own industry.

As we have done in past webinars, we will bring together experts on this topic from various perspectives. Following panelist presentations there will be time for questions from the audience.

The registration link will give you the opportunity to submit specific questions in advance. You will also have the opportunity to submit questions during the webinar.

Learning Objectives

  1. Hear an overview of the Heavy Duty sector.
  2. Understand unique challenges and opportunities for the remanufacturing of heavy duty equipment.
  3. Hear best practices in the remanufacturing of heavy duty equipment that may be applicable to your own industry.
