Posted on August 12, 2014

The Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) announced three new opportunities for companies in the remanufacturing industry to grow their business at AAPEX 2014 with the new “Remanufacturing Experience at AAPEX.”

The events include a REMANedu Conference and private one-on-one meetings on Nov. 3, and an invitation-only reception for Remanufacturing Section exhibitors and guests on Nov. 5. AAPEX takes place Nov. 4-Nov. 6, at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, with AAPEXedu sessions starting on Nov. 3.

The new “Remanufacturing Experience at AAPEX” is co-hosted by the Motor & Equipment Remanufacturers Association (MERA), the remanufacturing division of the Motor & Equipment Manufacturers Association (MEMA), and the Auto Care Association.

“Remanufacturing is a growing sector of the automotive aftermarket, and the new ‘Remanufacturing Section at AAPEX’ offers new opportunities for aftermarket companies to grow their business,” said John Chalifoux, president and COO, MERA.

“The Auto Care Association strongly supports new opportunities to promote the sustainability of engine rebuilding in the aftermarket, and the ‘Remanufacturing Experience at AAPEX’ will create new opportunities for our members to grow their business,” said Rich White, senior vice president, Auto Care Association.

To build upon the ongoing success of the Remanufacturing Section, AAPEX 2014 will offer registered AAPEX attendees engaged in the remanufacturing industry new education sessions during the REMANedu Conference, Nov. 3, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., at the Venetian Hotel.
