During its recent annual summit in Las Vegas, the Automotive Parts Remanufacturers Assn. (APRA) awarded TransAxle its “Mike Hill Heavy Duty Remanufacturer of the Year” award.
The award is given to a company or individual that has demonstrated innovative ways to create and grow a successful business model and in the process, supported industry efforts to advance the science of remanufacturing.
According to Bill Gager, president of APRA/HDRG, the decision to award TransAxle LLC of Cinnaminson, NJ, this year’s award was because they are a leading remanufacturer in the aftermarket.
“TransAxle has consistently demonstrated a strong effort to focus on their customers while using ‘best in class’ techniques to improve the performance of remanufactured products,” said Gager.
“TransAxle has stepped up the sharing of these best practices to advance the performance of the industry as a whole,” he continued “Combined, this two-pronged approach has earned them this year’s “Heavy Duty Remanufacturer of the Year Award.”
“In recent years, remanufacturing has received a great deal of attention in industries as diverse as printer cartridges and cell phones,” said David Olsen, TransAxle’s CEO. “But the heart of remanufacturing has long been the automotive and heavy-duty industries. On behalf of the TransAxle team, we are excited to be recognized by our peers in the industry and are very thankful for this prestigious honor.”
TransAxle is a remanufacturer and supplier of specialty drivetrain products, including manual transmissions for all sizes of trucks, Allison automatic transmissions, light-duty automatic transmissions, transfer cases, steering components, brake and wheel products, hydraulics and suspension products for both on-highway trucks and off-highway heavy equipment.
