The Heavy Duty Remanufacturing Group (HDRG) of the Automotive Parts Remanufacturers Association (APRA) has awarded Detroit Reman its prestigious “Mike Hill Heavy Duty Remanufacturer of the Year Award.” The presentation was made on January 26, 2015 during the annual HDRG Summit at the Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas just prior to the start of the Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week (HDAW) also at the Mirage Hotel.
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, supports industry efforts to advance the science of remanufacturing. According to Joe Kripli, APRA’s President, the panel’s decision to honor Detroit Reman with this year’s award is because of Detroit Reman’s continued growth and innovation in remanufacturing technology.
Betsy Ballard, Director of Product Development and Growth, Detroit Reman, accepted the award on behalf of the company. “I am extremely proud to accept this prestigious award on behalf of Detroit Reman employees. As a direct result of their commitment to produce high quality products and develop proprietary remanufacturing technologies, our customers have come to expect some of the highest value products available in the market. We aim to exceed expectations every day.”
“We are honored to receive this distinctive award which recognizes Detroit Reman’s mission to leverage technology, creativity and a can-do culture to create products that are good for our customers and great for the environment,” added Sanjiv Khurana, President, Detroit Reman.
