What is Remanufacturing?

Remanufacturing is a comprehensive and rigorous industrial process by which a previously sold, leased, used, worn, remanufactured, or non-functional product or part is returned to a like-new, same-as-when-new, or better-than-when-new condition from both a quality and performance perspective, through a controlled, reproducible, and sustainable process.

Remanufacturing is not the same as recycling, repairing, or refurbishing.

Remanufacturing encompasses a wide variety of products which fall into twelve broad categories, called sectors. These include:

Consumer Products
Electrical Apparatus
Heavy Duty Equipment
Information Technology
Locomotive Systems
Medical Equipment
Office Furniture
Restaurant Equipment
