Caterpillar has opened a new remanufacturing facility in Singapore. The facility will serve as the regional source for remanufactured major components for highway trucks and other mining equipment, including engines, transmissions, final drives and torque converters.
Caterpillar vice president Greg Folley says, “This new Singapore facility will expand our capability to provide unmatched customer support to the mining industry of Asia. Remanufacturing is an attractive, growing and sustainable industry.
"Our investment here is another illustration of Caterpillar’s commitment to customers and sustainable development in Asia. Together with our remanufacturing facility in Shanghai, China, we now provide an unmatched combination of availability, cost, and regional support for our Asia-Pacific customers.”
Greg Folley says Caterpillar’s remanufacturing operations return end-of-life components to their original ‘same as when new’ condition in terms of reliability, durability and performance.
“Remanufacturing reduces waste, minimizes the need for raw materials to produce new parts and supports Caterpillar’s value proposition of providing customers with the lowest life cycle cost over the life of a product.”
The 20,000 square metre building will serve as the regional source for remanufactured major components for large off-highway trucks and other mining equipment, including engines, transmissions, final drives and torque converters.
