CTDI has launched Reman 8.0 to provide a solution for the growing challenges that complex automotive electronics such as body control modules and sensors provide to the automotive reman industry. Reman 8.0 is a one-stop solution for vehicle manufacturers and suppliers in the automotive industry leveraging CTDI’s 38 years of technical expertise, complex microelectronics and mechatronics test engineering and industry leading remanufacturing capabilities.
“Unlike the life-cycle of cars, the technology curve for electronics is getting shorter and shorter,” explained Mark Shasteen, vice president for CTDI’s automotive division. “With automotive electronics, the latest generation of devices simply won’t fit or function in older vehicles. In most cases, you need the original design to effectively perform the repair. However, sustaining production capability for older generation electronic parts are increasingly difficult and costly, and in many cases simply not practical. This makes remanufacturing the ideal and often the only option to meet vehicle life cycle demands.”
While CTDI is new to the automotive industry, the platform of its Reman 8.0 solution is built upon the company’s comprehensive electronics remanufacturing service portfolio which includes forward and reverse logistics, core management, component level repairs that meet OE standards, warranty screening and sustainable life-cycle solutions. Additionally, CTDI’s Electronic Tracking & Ordering System, ETOS, offers customers web-based order management and visibility to all reman activity. To help service the needs of the automotive industry, CTDI relies upon 65+ world-class remanufacturing locations in 15 countries including 41 locations throughout North America. This global network is supported by over 6,500 employees which includes a dedicated team of over 350 engineers.
CTDI’s Reman 8.0 solution is a fully integrated, one-stop service model, tailored to meet individual customer needs and represents eight different services. To find out more about Reman 8.0, see CTDI at AAPEX 2013 in Las Vegas, November 5-7 at booth #4075, or visit ctdi.com.
