Remanufacturing Leaders to Talk about Growth and Innovation Drivers for the Industry
The Remanufacturing Industries Council (RIC), in partnership with Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), announced its plans today to deliver specialized remanufacturing programs at the RIC-RIT World Remanufacturing Conference, a two-day event in which remanufacturing leaders can learn and discuss the most salient topics in the industry. Registered attendees are ensured a singular opportunity to collaborate for the global advancement of the remanufacturing industry.
The conference, hosted on the RIT campus in upstate New York, will feature a keynote address from Sam Allen, CEO of John Deere, and discussions led by remanufacturing insiders, including Jack Stack, President and CEO of SRC Holdings Corporation, and Dr. Nabil Nasr, Director of RIT’s Golisano Institute for Sustainability and CEO of the REMADE Institute.
“The remanufacturing industry is undergoing some very exciting development, and this conference will offer industry professionals a ‘one-stop-shop’ to get up to speed on all the emerging opportunities. This is the premiere event for the industry; you will get information at this event that you won’t get anywhere else.”
The two-day conference will feature dynamic sessions on emerging opportunities for the industry, including:
- the new REMADE Manufacturing USA Institute, a $140MM public-private partnership that will mature the state of promising remanufacturing technologies
- the Remanufacturing Roadmap, a recently completed government report focusing on strategies to improve reman capabilities and competitiveness
- the new ANSI standard for remanufacturing, which will help remanufactured products maintain a consistent high-quality image
“We have seen a lot of progress in remanufacturing over the years, but I believe we are about to embark on the most dynamic times in remanufacturing history. The RIC-RIT World Remanufacturing Conference is the place for our industry to learn about all the initiatives and changes impacting all of remanufacturing. The event will feature presentations from some of the best in the business — from OEMs, applied researchers, global remanufacturers, and more. This is a great opportunity to reconnect with old contacts and make new ones to drive your business forward,” said Bill Davies, Founder of Davies Office and RIC Chairman.
“The remanufacturing industry is undergoing some very exciting development, and this conference will offer industry professionals a ‘one-stop-shop’ to get up to speed on all the emerging opportunities,” said Dr. Nabil Nasr, Associate Provost at RIT and Director of the Golisano Institute for Sustainability. “This is the premiere event for the industry; you will get information at this event that you won’t get anywhere else,” said Dr. Nasr.
