Mar 18, 2018

Caterpillar manufacture heavy machinery, and develop practices that enable greater value to be recovered during remanufacturing processes. The company has been able to increase profit margin whilst still producing components of the highest quality. Rather than aiming to use less material, consideration goes into creating a product that is intended to be remanufactured a number of times.

Caterpillar’s remanufacturing activity began in 1973, and has since grown to encompass nine locations around the world, employing over 3600 people in a business model with an emphasis on component recovery.
