Meritor, Inc. has supported Michigan’s Fiscal Year 2013 Budget, which will extend a law prioritizing the use of remanufactured parts throughout most of the state’s motor vehicle fleet.
The budget was signed June 26 by Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder, and will run through Sept. 30, 2013. Meritor says Michigan’s budget also was applauded by the Motor & Equipment Remanufacturers Association (MERA).
“Remanufactured parts are an effective way for fleets to ensure the performance of their vehicles while keeping maintenance costs contained,” says Joe Mejaly, president, Aftermarket and Trailer, Meritor. “These parts typically cost much less than the price of a new part, and the performance is as good or, in some cases, better than the original.”
“Setting a priority for the acquisition of remanufactured parts is an important example of Michigan’s efforts to secure the greatest value for its taxpayers,” adds Jerry Rush, senior director, Government and Community Relations, Meritor.
