The Automotive Parts Remanufacturers Association (APRA) has awarded TransAxle LLC its Mike Hill ‘Heavy-Duty Remanufacturer of the Year’ award.
The award is given to a company or individual who has demonstrated innovative ways to create and grow a successful business model and in the process, supported industry efforts to advance the science of remanufacturing, the APRA says.
According to Bill Gager, APRA/HDRG president, the panel’s decision to award TransAxle LLC of Cinnaminson, N.J. this year’s award was because it is a leading remanufacturer in the aftermarket.
“TransAxle has consistently demonstrated a strong effort to focus on their customers while using ‘best in class’ techniques to improve the performance of remanufactured products,” he says. “Transaxle has stepped up the sharing of these best practices to advance the performance of the industry as a whole. Combined, this two pronged approach has earned them this year’s ‘Heavy-Duty Remanufacturer of the Year’ award from APRA’s Heavy-Duty Remanufacturing Group (HDRG).”
“On behalf of the TransAxle team, we are excited to be recognized by our peers in the industry and are very thankful for this prestigious honor,” says Dave Olsen, TransAxle CEO. “At TransAxle, we define remanufacturing as a comprehensive, sustainable industrial process in which worn components are returned to same as new or better condition.
“The process must include defined technical specifications, robust testing standards and a warranty reflective of the quality of the components. This is contrasted to traditional rebuilding in which only the failed part within a component would be replaced potentially leading to an earlier future failure as the remainder of the original components are left intact.”
