Caterpillar Inc. has opened a new 20,000-m2 (215,000-ft2) remanufacturing facility in Singapore that will serve as the regional source for remanufactured major components—including engines, transmissions, final drives, and torque converters—for large off-highway trucks and other mining equipment. This new plant and an existing remanufacturing facility in Shanghai, China, will allow Cat to offer “an unmatched combination of availability, cost, and regional support for our Asia-Pacific customers,” said Greg Folley, Vice President with responsibility for the Remanufacturing & Components Division. He noted that remanufacturing is a growing industry that contributes to sustainable development by keeping nonrenewable resources in circulation for multiple lifetimes.

The Singapore facility itself has received the Green Mark Gold Plus award from the country’s Building Construction Authority, which requires a 25% reduction in energy consumption that was achieved via the building design, materials used, and equipment efficiency.
