Remanufacturing Section To Return To AAPEX 2013

Remanufacturing Section To Return To AAPEX 2013

MERA and ERC members to promote the sustainability benefits of remanufacturing.

MOKENA, Ill. – The Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) Remanufacturing Section – co-hosted by the Motor & Equipment Remanufacturers Association (MERA) and the Engine Rebuilders Council (ERC) – will return to the annual trade show in 2013 to promote the environmental, economic and product performance benefits of remanufacturing in the automotive aftermarket.
AAPEX is set for Tuesday, Nov. 5 through Thursday, Nov. 7, at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas. The event promised to deliver new products, the latest technologies, high-powered product demos, innovative business solutions and invaluable networking opportunities to "Grow Your Business at AAPEX.” The event is jointly sponsored by the Automotive Aftermarket Industry Association (AAIA) and the Automotive Aftermarket Suppliers Association (AASA).
The AAPEX Remanufacturing Section will feature dozens of exhibits from ERC and MERA members, as well as live engine rebuilding demonstrations by Hendrick Motorsports technicians. To promote the sustainability benefits of remanufacturing, the section will be surrounded by green carpet, highlighted in green on the show map and recognized in AAPEX communications.
“Remanufactured and rebuilt engines deliver sustainability and value that not only benefits consumers, but the entire aftermarket,” said Courtney Carbone, director, AAIA member services, Engine Rebuilders Council. “ERC members are excited to return to this important section to promote these benefits in 2013.”
“Remanufacturing is really sustainable manufacturing, and members of MERA are recognized as leaders in our industry,” added Tom Rippinger, senior manager, communications and member services, MERA. “We look forward to working with ERC to bring even greater attention to the companies that will participate in this exciting section.”
The Remanufacturing Section sold out quickly last year, so prospective exhibitors from MERA and ERC member companies are encouraged to complete their AAPEX applications as soon as possible, with the appropriate box checked for the Remanufacturing Section. For more information, prospective exhibitors should contact Sandi Kulas, AAPEX Event Management, W.T. Glasgow, at 708-226-1300 or [email protected].
