GB Remanufacturing Hosts APRA for Global Reman Day 2023

GB Remanufacturing Hosts APRA for Global Reman Day 2023

Every Thursday in April, Team GB wears their green shirts as a celebration of the sustainable nature of their work.

On April 13, GB Remanufacturing celebrated Reman Day with remanufacturers around the world. Reman Day aims to raise awareness for the remanufacturing industry and its often-overlooked benefits for consumers, the economy and the environment.

Remanufacturing is a standardized industrial process by which previously sold, worn or non-functional products are returned to same-as-new or better condition and performance. The complex and stringent remanufacturing process is in line with specific technical specifications, including engineering, quality, and testing standards. The process yields fully warranted products that meet or exceed OEM specifications.

“This year we were honored to host APRA to take part in our annual Reman Day celebration,” said Michael Kitching, GB Remanufacturing’s president and CEO. 

We have been a proud member of the association since 1990, and it was exciting to showcase our intricate remanufacturing process with APRA President Joe Kripli, a longtime industry friend of ours.” 

At GB Reman, the day culminated in a company-wide event where employees gathered to celebrate and learn about the tremendous impact of their work.

Every Thursday in April, Team GB wears their green shirts as a celebration of the sustainable nature of their work as a remanufacturing company. 

“We believe it is important to educate our team about the significance of what we do every single day,” continued Kitching. “We take pride in our remanufacturing process, the premium products we produce, and the impact that we have on the world around us. Reman Day celebrates our role as a remanufacturer and motivates us to constantly pursue innovation throughout our process and our products.”

Since 1986, the remanufacturing process at GB Remanufacturing has prevented more than:

500,000 kilowatt hours of energy usage, 2.4 million pounds of steel from being produced 780,000 pounds of CO2 from being emitted into the atmosphere.
