APRA Releases Fourth Core Manual

The Automotive Parts Remanufacturers Association (APRA) has announced the release of its Fourth Core Manual providing an update on all aspects of cores. This fourth core manual is the published result of the last core seminar that took place in 2008 during the APRA International BIG R Show in Las Vegas.

“The recent meeting discussed part number proliferation, foreign/ domestic mix, heavy duty vs. passenger car parts, shorter core cycles, changing distribution channels, new forms of competition, electronic and mechatronic parts and stagnant market segments,” states Bill Gager, president of the APRA.

Copies of the Core Manual are available for US$95 to APRA members and US$180 to non-members. To request information on how to order your copy, please call 703-968-2772, ext. 103 or email
