Electronics Remanufacturing Company (ERC), LLC of Walled Lake, Mich. has been named the “Mike Hill Heavy Duty Remanufacturer of the Year Award” winner by the Heavy Duty Remanufacturing Group of the Automotive Parts Remanufacturers Association. The award was presented Jan. 21, 2013 during the HDRG Summit prior to the start of Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week at The Mirage in Las Vegas.
According to the APRA, 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. Bill Gager, president of the APRA and HDRG, says ERC was bestowed with the award due to its pioneering work with electronic remanufacturing in the commercial vehicle market.
ERC’s board is made up of seasoned commercial vehicle industry veterans; Jim Morrow, CEO; Russ Schinzing, president; and Warren Klein, former owner of Transaxle.
“ERC was formed in January 2010 to service an underserviced marketplace,” says Schinzing. “We were one of the first independent, commercial vehicle focused, electronics remanufacturers to recognize that there were many electronic components on the engine, cab, and trailer that were not being offered as remanufactured parts.”
ERC also was recently awarded the 2012 North American Company of the Year Award in the Remanufacturing Electronics market by Frost & Sullivan, and has been a member of APRA and its’ HDRG Division since its inception in 2010.
