R&D Workshop & Facility Tour

Jun 8, 2018

The R&D committee of the Remanufacturing Industries Council is pleased to host an ongoing series of reman workshops to highlight best practices within our industry and connect members to experts and other resources helpful for our work.  We anticipate two workshops each year to be evenly spaced around the annual RIC meeting.  Sites will include member companies, but also other centers of excellence in related fields (e.g. refurbishment centers or repair depots) or applicable technology (e.g. cleaning, electronics, additive manufacturing). 

The events will be open to anyone within RIC member companies. The 1-day-plus-evening-prior format will be business casual and typically feature facility tour(s) and short technical programs.  
The first event will be in Springfield, MO and feature Springfield ReManufacturing Corp (SRC), John Deere Reman, and an overview of a new remanufacturing curriculum at Ozark Technical College (OTC).  Details and registration information are below. 

Please extend this invitation to your company colleagues.  We look forward to seeing all of our members in July!
