Statement of Remanufacture
The process of producing high performance and specialty automatic transmissions and torque converters begins with an OEM core unit previously utilized in a passenger car or light truck application. TCI® takes these cores and disassembles these units. After inspection TCI® either replaces or refurbishes the component parts for use in later assembly operations. All gaskets, seals, clutches and critical components are replaced with new pieces. All of the complete transmissions and torque converters fit the category of a remanufactured product.
According to a study by the National Center for Remanufacturing and Resource Recovery at the Rochester (N.Y.) Institute of Technology, it is estimated that the energy conserved by worldwide automotive remanufacturing in one year equals the electricity generated by three nuclear plants or 7.1 million barrels of crude oil.
