Detroit Diesel Remanufacturing LLC this week hosted industry media at its facility in Hibbing, Minn., to showcase its electronics remanufacturing and manufacturing capabilities. At the event, the company announced plans to move the facility into an industrial building located on the Range Regional Airport property. The company said this move is the result of continuing support from local agencies, including the Iron Range Resources and Rehabilitation Board (IRRRB), whose mission is to promote and invest in business, community and workforce development for the betterment of Northeastern Minnesota.
The Hibbing facility has experienced significant growth since its acquisition by Detroit Diesel Remanufacturing LLC in 2007. An additional 30,000 square feet will immediately be added to airport location to provide the space necessary to support the electronic manufacturing and reman activities well into the future. Relocation of existing operations will be complete in early 2015.
"Detroit Reman is more than a remanufacturer of heavy iron," said Stefan Kürschner, current president of Detroit Reman. "Through the growth and evolution of the Hibbing plant over the past six years and because of the creativity and passion of its employees, Detroit Reman has become an expert in the manufacture and remanufacture of high-quality electronics products."
The event also provided an opportunity to announce the appointment of Sanjiv Khurana as president of Detroit Diesel Remanufacturing LLC, assuming overall responsibility of Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) remanufacturing activities. Khurana is succeeding Stefan Kürschner who, after four years with Detroit Reman, begins his new assignment as president and CEO of Daimler Vehiculos Comerciales Mexico on Sept. 1.
