Instrument Sales and Service, Inc. expands into the Off Highway/Heavy Duty Truck and Fleet Markets with Remanufacturing Solutions for Electromechanical Parts

PORTLAND, Ore., Sept. 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Instrument Sales and Service, Inc. (ISS), a US market leader in the remanufacturing of automotive electronics in North America, is expanding into the Off Highway, Heavy Duty Truck, and Fleet markets. ISS intends to take its proven remanufacturing experience and expertise -- honed over 30 years and more than 1 million remanufactured components -- and apply it to a full spectrum of remanufacturing solutions for the Off Highway, Heavy Duty Truck, Tractor, Fleet, and Mass Transit market segments.    

Dave Lisle, President and CEO of ISS summarizes the company's competitive product and service offering as follows, "ISS offers an extensive portfolio of remanufacturing capabilities for Off Highway and Heavy Duty Truck electromechanical components, including Instrumentation, Displays, Navigation, Electronic Control Modules, HVAC Controls, Driver Interface Switchgear, Radios and Vehicle Sensors.  For OEM's and Tier-1 suppliers, this provides an additional past model service solution for Warranty, Service and Aftermarket customers, as well as providing significant commercial savings and OE-service parts pain management." 

Some of the ways ISS is setting the standard in remanufacturing is with their ability to implement remanufacturing programs for parts that are either no longer economical to produce new, or that require a designed-in remanufacturing strategy from the start of volume production.  This means improved product lifecycle profitability for OEM's, and enhanced service and extended product life for the customer.

In cooperation with the OEM and/or Tier-1 Supplier(s), the Engineering staff at ISS are able to identify component failure modes, develop test procedures and manage an end-to-end ISO:T/S 16949:2009 certified remanufacturing program.  One of the primary goals with the remanufacturing process at ISS is to design and implement a past model parts service program so that it blends as seamlessly as possible with an existing OEM program.

ISS Remanufacturing General Manager, Pat Mayo, welcomes the opportunity to enter new markets where ISS is able to showcase their proven core competencies in EM-component remanufacturing.  "Not only will OEM's who partner with ISS reap the benefits associated with having a Remanufacturing Partner, they will also realize streamlined efficiencies, extended product lifecycle service support, and improved customer satisfaction and retention," says Mayo.  "In addition, ISS partners can also count on a value-added supply chain management process that will bring end-to-end sourcing and distribution solutions – from supplier selection and qualification, to component validation, inspection and product refurbishment and assembly, through on-time delivery to the end customer."

"While OEM's can count on increased profitability and the highest quality when partnering with ISS, there are product lifecycle and environmental benefits, as well," stated Lawrance Griffiths, Senior Director of Business Development for ISS.  "While extending the useful product life and avoiding premature disposal of original OEM components, ISS also efficiently diverts 80% of their plastics and by-products from the remanufacturing process away from landfills and directly into recycling facilities.  That translates to over 112,000 pounds of recycled material annually. Therefore, developing a remanufacturing strategy in partnership with ISS is not only good for the balance sheet, it's good for the environment."

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

The media, of course, continues to extol the virtues of the cloud, including how easy it is to get there. Migrating...
