This award will be presented to a remanufacturer who has demonstrated leadership and vision in the industry. A committee will make the selection from among those nominated. Nominations may be directed to the attention of Bill Gager, President of the Automotive Parts Remanufacturers Association (APRA) in Chantilly, Virginia.
The winner of the Heavy Duty Remanufacturer of the Year Award will join the past winners who are Precision Rebuilders, St. Clair, Missouri; Weller Truck Parts, Grand Rapids, Michigan; Meritor, Plainfield, Indiana; Camerota Truck Parts, Enfield, Connecticut; and Transaxle, Cinnaminson, New Jersey.
According to Gager, “Seven years ago the Heavy Duty Remanufacturing Group (HDRG) was formed to further the interests of the heavy duty remanufacturer members of APRA. Both APRA and HDRG have benefited from numerous hard working individuals who have helped in the creation of this group and we are more than pleased to be able to recognize one of them at our luncheon in 2013.”
Gager pointed out that a high percentage of APRA members participate in the heavy duty marketplace and what better way to recognize this fact than by initiating an annual “Heavy Duty Remanufacturer of the Year” award. The registration fee for the HDRG Summit will include admittance to the luncheon.
Gager added, “We hope all heavy duty remanufacturers will show their support of the HDRG and understand the importance the heavy duty commercial vehicle business plays in the total remanufacturing marketplace. The HDRG Summit always takes place right before the opening of Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week (HDAW) which will be January 21-24, 2013 at The Mirage Hotel.
