The Haldex Remanufacturing facility located in Marion, N.C. celebrated 25 years of being “green.” Since 1985, the remanufacturing facility has been saving the environment 80 percent of the energy that would have been used to manufacture a comparable new part.
“Remanufacturing preserves the value of the original manufacturing-including energy costs, waste disposal and investment in capital and labor inputs-which recycling alone cannot do,” said Haldex Remanufactured Product Manager George Trapp. “The process consists of taking used vehicle parts, completely disassembling and thoroughly cleaning them, replacing worn components with original quality or better components and restoring them to their original function.”
By utilizing remanufacturing, this Haldex facility reduces the total amount of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere because of the inherent energy conservation and limits the amount of refuse to be disposed of in landfills.
Haldex is one of the broadest lines of quality remanufactured commercial vehicle parts in the world and provides the most extensive line of any single remanufacturer by offering remanufactured air compressors, air dryers, air system valves, water pumps, hydraulic brake parts, alternators and starters.
Haldex also congratulates over thirty dedicated employees who have worked at the facility for over 20 years.
