Core Strategy – conversation with John Chalifoux, President of MERA

With the increased focus on sustainability across the automotive industry reduce and recycle have become established considerations, but reuse is less often considered.

The Motor & Equipment Remanufacturers Association (MERA) which began operations in January 2011 as an affiliate association of the Motor & Equipment Manufacturers Association (MEMA) represents remanufacturers through advocacy, research and collaboration. John Chalifoux, President of MERA told me more about motor vehicle parts remanufacturing.
