Engine Builder Magazine to Co-sponsor HD Diesel Engine Program and Exhibit at BIG R Show


Automotive Parts Remanufacturers Association (APRA) and its Heavy Duty
Remanufacturing Group (HDRG) have announced the addition of Engine Builder
Magazine as a co-sponsor of the HD Diesel Engine Program and Exhibit
Section of the Big R Show. APRA’s BIG R Show will be co-located with
the ATRA Powertrain Expo at The Riviera Hotel in Las Vegas on November
1-2, just prior to the AAPEX and SEMA Shows.

Bill Gager, president of APRA, said in announcing Engine Builder’s co-sponsorship, “It makes sense to have the pre-eminent publication for the engine rebuilding market as a co-sponsor. Engine Builder
reaches and is read by all the most important buying influences in the
engine remanufacturing/rebuilding, parts and equipment market, which is
the target audience for the new section of the exposition. We look
forward to working with the people at Engine Builder Magazine and Babcox Publications in developing the new HD engine emphasis at the BIG R Show.”

Program content is currently being developed by a steering committee of
diesel engine component suppliers and remanufacturers/distributors. The
BIG R Show will provide a venue for the diesel engine remanufacturers
and suppliers to meet and network among their peers. There will be
seminars especially for diesel engine remanufacturers/rebuilders and
the show will contain a special diesel engine section. The HD diesel
engine exhibit and programs will contain information on all types of
diesel engine applications.

Dave Wooldridge, publisher of Engine Builder Magazine,
said, “Although the over the road truck portion of the diesel engine
business has been hard hit by the current recession, there are areas of
the market that have weathered the storm and offer growth. Custom and
production engine remanufacturers/rebuilders are exploring and
participating in many niche market opportunities which offer profitable
sales on both shop work and replacement parts. And, as the market
recovers, this show will help provide a head start for those
recapturing traditional heavy duty diesel engine rebuilding. We look
forward to helping to promote the sales, educational and networking
opportunities offered through the HD Diesel Engine Program and Exhibit
Section of this year’s BIG R Show.”


The population of diesel engines is growing and aging offering
increasing future opportunities in the aftermarket for engine
remanufacturers and their parts and equipment suppliers. The BIG R Show
looks forward to being the venue at which these opportunities can be
explored by the industry.
