Remanufacturing is a comprehensive and rigorous industrial process by which a previously sold, worn, or non-functional product or component is returned to a “like-new” or “better-than-new” condition and warranted in performance level and quality.
Remanufacturing is not the same as “recycling” or “repairing”.
Some of the most commonly remanufactured product categories are:
- Aircraft components
- Automotive parts
- Electrical and electronic equipment
- Engines and components
- Medical equipment
- Office furniture
- Printing equipment
- Restaurant and food-service equipment
