With sustainability becoming increasingly important, it’s great Caterpillar parts and machines can have more than one life thanks to remanufacturing or rebuilding.
Caterpillar has been remanufacturing components since 1973, saving energy and materials. Remanufactured – known as reman - parts are not just cleaned and reassembled. Caterpillar salvages, reengineers and remanufactures using state-of-the-art processes and technologies to recapture and renew the built-in quality and performance of the original part.
The production quality of Cat parts means they last longer and require less repair or replacement than other brands due to the high standard of the manufacturing process.
This has an immediate effect on both the environment, with less resources needed over a longer lifetime, and reduced running and maintenance costs for owners. And when a machine or parts do come to the end of their life, they can be remanufactured or rebuilt.
It’s a sensible as well as sustainable choice, with reman parts costing on average 40 per cent less than a new part without sacrificing quality. With Cat reman parts subject to such rigorous standards, they’re backed with a ‘same as new’ 12-month warranty.
