A new Remanufacturing Section at the Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) will highlight the many economic, environmental and product performance benefits of remanufacturing through action-packed engine rebuilds and exhibits by leading remanufacturers and suppliers.
AAPEX is slated for Tuesday, Oct. 30 through Thursday, Nov. 1, at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, Nev.
The 8,000 square-foot section is co-hosted by the Motor & Equipment Remanufacturers Association (MERA) and the Automotive Aftermarket Industry Association (AAIA) Engine Rebuilders Council (ERC). Exhibit space for the new section is sold out.
The engine rebuild area, sponsored by the ERC, the AERA Engine Builders Association, the Production Engine Remanufacturers Association (PERA) and MAHLE Clevite Inc., will feature professional, live engine rebuilding demonstrations by Hendrick Motorsports technicians. Demonstrations will occur twice daily, at 10 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. during the show. Information on the benefits of repowered engines also will be available.
In addition, MERA will host a press conference on Oct. 29 to announce future plans for Manufactured Again™ – an education and awareness campaign to heighten the understanding and acceptance of remanufacturing.
AAPEX represents the $395 billion global motor vehicle aftermarket and is jointly sponsored by the Automotive Aftermarket Suppliers Association (AASA) and the Automotive Aftermarket Industry Association (AAIA).
