Earth’s iron ore deposits date to nearly 2 billion years ago. To us, it makes a lot of sense to keep that iron, which we use in our products, around for as long as possible. It’s a concept that also makes a lot of financial sense for our customers and why our remanufacturing and rebuilding businesses are a win for all.

350 Cat Certified
Rebuild Tests
& Inspections

Cat Reman focuses on the reclamation, recycling and reuse of parts and components, such as engines, into good-as-new ones. The process keeps materials, such as iron, in our value chain and out of landfills and is less energy-intensive than manufacturing a new machine.

Cat Rebuild programs increase the lifespan of equipment by providing customers with product updates for a fraction of the cost of buying a new machine.

How Cat
Reman
Works

Purchase

Customer buys remanufactured component; price includes a core deposit as incentive to turn in the original “core” product being replaced.

1

Inspection

Dealer inspects core product; if accepted, then deposit returned
to customer.

2

Disassembly

Cores are disassembled down to their smallest parts, losing their original identities.

3

Cleaning

Elements are cleaned and inspected against strict engineering criteria.

4

Salvage

Individual components are salvaged using advanced technologies

5

Recycling

Components that
fail to meet performance specifications are recycled as scrap.

6

Assembly

Components are assembled into Cat Reman products that include the latest engineering updates.

7

Testing

Each product is tested to ensure it meets same-as-when-new specifications and a new serial number is assigned where applicable.

8

Marketing

Product is painted Caterpillar yellow and re-enters the marketplace for purchase as a remanufactured part.
