People in the remanufacturing industry are a special breed. They don't take no for an answer Remanufacturers need to think out of the box. In case there's a lack of cores, they will find way to source them. In case any of restrictions, whether its legal, tax or OE policy, they find a workaround to get the process flowing. In case their largest competitor needs a favour; they're happy to serve them. You'll never know when it's the next time you desperately need something in return. Their meetings at exhibitions conferences and symposia seem like family gatherings where competitors sit aside, share useful best practices while enjoying a friendly drink together. It is this can-do mentality that forms the basis of a successful remanufacturing business.

Since 2005 ReMaTecNews, has been putting the spotlight on one fellow industry member to honoring Remanufacturer of the Year (RotY) Award. Renown industry legends have won this prestigious accolade. Without exception they have proven to be true frontrunners. They go further than anyone else to achieve significant results despite head wind, unforeseen obstacles and challenging competition. This year, the RotY Awards have introduced three new categories. Many people are questioning what it takes to be a Remanufacturer of the Year?

Best Reman Process Optimization

We look for outstanding engineering quality. Plant managers who pushed their reman process flows to the limit, being an inspiration to others. Process engineers who have adapted the the latest innovative cleaning technologies, delivering staggering results. Reman Program managers who successfully integrated remanufactured components in their new production line etc.

Best Reman Business Innovation

Here is to exceptional cleverness; entrepreneurial strategists who managed to open up markets that no one has ever entered before, creating rewarding futureproof business models. Remanufacturers that looked beyond borders of their own sector and found reman opportunities in an entirely different field.

Best Reman Ambassador

Last but definitely not least we are recruiting people or businesses that were instrumental in the promotion and acceptance of reman products. Whether it is within the distribution chain, on the level of politicians or general audience, their efforts should have been instrumental for peers and industry fellows.

But what is at stake? Quite a lot! The most renown and prestigious award in this industry. A shining trophy on your desk. An award logo that may be used in promotion campaigns. Potential customers waiting for you on the phone. Above all, infinite respect and everlasting recognition from industry peers. We know there are many people who possess these skills in this industry. We encourage anyone to take part in this prestigious competition. Make sure to apply before June 26 and let the best competitors win.

So, don't wait and send those applications in today (or tomorrow, as long as its prior to Jun 26). Just because you can!
