ELYRIA, Ohio — Bendix has introduced a new business unit solely focused on remanufacturing.
Officials say the new Bendix unit consolidates the company’s remanufacturing efforts and will expand the company’s aftermarket business in North America and worldwide.
“Remanufacturing for Class 6, 7, 8, and trailers in North America accounted for $3.1 billion in 2010,” said Steve Mance, Bendix vice-president and general manager – Charging group. “Remanufacturing offers long-term growth opportunities for Bendix. With our long-established expertise in remanufacturing and deep understanding of market needs, we are well-positioned to expand our efforts and realize the significant growth potential in this area. Furthermore, the remanufacturing business will provide customers an opportunity to purchase remanufactured products that have the same level of performance they have come to expect from a Bendix product.”
By salvaging key components of returned products and reassembling them with other salvaged and new components, Bendix officials say they will be able to provide remanufactured products which meet OE specifications. The company says Bendix’s engineers in the new business unit can also now use components originally manufactured by other brands to bring remanufactured parts as close as possible to their OE specifications.
Bendix says that not only will its remanufactured parts provide a lower-priced alternative to new parts, the company’s release process also means Bendix can guarantee its remanufactured products for the same period of time as an OE product warranty.
Officials also noted that remanufacturing reduces Bendix’s environmental impact by lessening the carbon dioxide output associated with the fabrication of new parts.
Henry Foxx, Bendix director for Compressors, will lead the unit. Foxx, a 20-year industry veteran, has led the Bendix Compressors group since joining the company in 2005.
