America's Remanufacturing Company Celebrates Global Remanufacturing Day 2019
AUGUSTA, Ga., April 19, 2019 (Newswire.com) - America’s Remanufacturing Company, a reverse logistics and remanufacturing solutions company servicing OEMs, Distributors and Retailers, celebrated the second annual Global Remanufacturing Day at its corporate office in Augusta, GA. The celebration focused on educating local community members on the value of remanufacturing and its importance to the circular economy.
ARC CRO Paul Adamson said, “The Remanufacturing Industries Council worked diligently to promote and grow this celebration of remanufacturing. For nearly two decades, ARC has worked collaboratively with our customers to divert consumer goods from the landfill and create retail-ready products for global consumers. We recognize that our efforts create value for our customers, protect global brands, and drive environmental stewardship.”
Reman Day is a global event executed at the local level. Remanufacturers host students, teachers, parents, job seekers and other local community members at open houses, plant tours and presentations designed to demonstrate the benefits of remanufacturing and inspire the next generation of remanufacturers.
This year’s events encompassed nearly 200 locations spanning 21 countries on all six inhabited continents. Celebrations were not only global but included participation from the entirety of the remanufacturing industry -- all 12 of the recognized sectors of remanufacturing were involved. A Resolution from the U.S. House of Representatives and Proclamations from State and Local government officials were signed, formally establishing April 11, 2019 as Reman Day.
“Reman Day is a critical component in raising public awareness and perception about remanufacturing. It’s a valuable opportunity to educate students and local community members on the benefits of our industry,” stated Jenn Brake, Director of Marketing & Membership, Remanufacturing Industries Council (RIC). “We are excited to keep the momentum going. Mark your calendars for April 9, 2020.”
Remanufacturing is a comprehensive and rigorous industrial process by which a previously sold, leased, used, worn, or non-functional product or part is returned to a “same-as-when-new, or better” condition, from both a quality and performance perspective, through a controlled, reproducible, and sustainable process.
Remanufacturing is a $160 billion industry worldwide providing well over 450,000 jobs. It is a key part of the circular economy keeping valuable products in use and out of the waste stream giving them multiple lives. On average, it saves 85 percent of energy, water and material use compared to a newly manufactured product and can reduce greenhouse gas emissions between 79 percent and 99 percent.
Reman Day was created in 2018 by the Remanufacturing Industries Council, a strategic alliance of remanufacturing leaders focused on advancing the entire industry. Additional organizations, part of RIC’s Remanufacturing Association Alliance that played a vital role in the success of Reman Day are Aircraft Fleet Recycling Association (AFRA), Automotive Parts Remanufacturers Association (APRA), Aeronautical Repair Station Association (ARSA), International Imaging Technology Council (I-ITC), Professional Electrical Apparatus Recyclers League (PEARL), and Reman World, the leading international cross-industry remanufacturing publication.
