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.

Learning Objectives

  1. Hear an overview of the Heavy Duty sector.
  2. Understand unique challenges and opportunities for the remanufacturing of heavy duty equipment.
