APRA Announces Name Change for Volume Transmission Division

The Automotive Parts Rebuilders Association has renamed its Volume Transmission Division. The new name -- the Volume Transmission Remanufacturing Group -- was unveiled at a recent APRA board meeting in Long Island, NY. According to APRA Chairman Craig Leuck of Jasper Engines and Transmission in Jasper, Ind., the intent of the name change was to reach out to high volume transmission remanufacturers -- those doing several hundred per month or more.

CHANTILLY, VA — The Automotive Parts Rebuilders Association has renamed its Volume Transmission Division. The new name — the Volume Transmission Remanufacturing Group — was unveiled at a recent APRA board meeting in Long Island, NY.

According to APRA Chairman Craig Leuck of Jasper Engines and Transmission in Jasper, Ind., the intent of the name change was to reach out to high volume transmission remanufacturers — those doing several hundred per month or more.

The Volume Transmission Remanufacturing Group will focus mostly on non-technical issues as they relate to transmissions, such as inventory control, core accounting, lean remanufacturing techniques, quality control, cleaning technology, disassembly and assembly techniques, warranty return issues, customer relations and other management and human relation topics, which will be covered at future meetings.

“We do not wish to duplicate the excellent technical services being offered by two of the organizations already serving the transmission rebuilders,” said Bill Gager, APRA president. “What we are looking to do is create some great programs that enhance the volume transmission remanufacturers so that they can offer the best product they can to their customers, many of whom are transmission rebuilders and installers.”

Leuck added: “We also realize that there are some important legislative and governmental issues that we should educate our members on as well as help them offer their input to the legislative process. We should be speaking as a unified industry on non-competitive issues that affect our remanufacturing companies.”

Transmission remanufacturing companies that wish to become involved in the Volume Transmission Remanufacturing Group can contact Bill Gager at (703) 968-2772 ext 103 or [email protected].
