Engine remanufacturers to join forces

Posted on 4 Mar 2008 by The Manufacturer

Representatives of engine remanufacture from around the globe are to join together for the first time next month to discuss mutual industry sector issues and concerns.

It is hoped the meeting, hosted in London by the UK’s Federation of Engine Remanufacturers (FER), will allow delegates to develop strategies for success and growth.

“Although concern for the environment and the need to recycle are growing trends in the automotive industry, engine remanufacturers and their suppliers are being increasingly challenged,” said secretary of the FER Brian Ludford.

“Political activity and technical developments at original equipment level are increasingly threatening the operations of remanufacturing specialists who are more often than not in the best position to provide a lead on recycling initiatives and green manufacturing issues,” explained John Goodman, president of the American Engine Remanufacturing Association.
