Reman industry completes annual show

The 2016 Big R/ReMaTecUSA Show, the largest remanufacturing event in North America, attracted 1,530 attendees from 47 countries when it was held over the weekend, says the Automotive Parts Remanufacturers Association (APRA).

According to APRA, the show featured 74 exhibiting companies occupying 107 trade booths displaying the latest products and services for the remanufacturing industry. The show also featured 14 educational sessions, many of which will be available to members on the APRA website. The education sessions were headlined by Keynote Presenter Bogi Lateiner of Velocity Channel’s All Girl Garage as she presented “Remanufacturing Your Brand: How to Maximize Sales & Profits by Overcoming Negative Perceptions”. The annual awards breakfast featured Mike Rayne, FTI Consulting, and he presented “Remanufacturing Industry Disruption: The Trends and Opportunities.”

The show also was co-located with the Automatic Transmission Rebuilders Association, which increased the energy of the event.

“A key value that APRA provides is networking,” says Scott D. Parker, APRA Association Manager. “This year’s event provided great opportunities and we are looking forward to building on this momentum for the 2017 event.”
