LONG BEACH, California - December 3, 2020
GB Remanufacturing is proud to announce our recognition in the 2020 Rematec News Remanufacturer of the Year Awards Ceremony. The Special Recognition Award stemmed from our effort during the height of the Coronavirus pandemic when GB partnered with Long Beach Memorial Hospital to design, manufacture, and deliver critical medical ventilator parts to treat critically-ill Covid-19 patients.
In April this year, normal hospital respirators needed to be converted to pressure controlled respirators. The Original Equipment Manufacturer did not have all the pieces to manufacture the special part, so the medical OEM used the Emergency Use Act, where they allowed other (re)manufacturers to add parts to their product. GB Reman provided this life-saving ventilator part to its local hospital.
The award ceremony jury praised the way GB Reman took on this project: “A remanufacturer has the core competence to develop “work arounds” for problems and to transform them into industrial, capable processes. This competence is the logical precondition of GB Reman to develop and deliver needed parts for the hospital within the Covid-19 pandemic. In short: GB Reman put their competence to good use in times of need.” The jury proceeded: “The business opportunity for reman is not only to make money, but also to run a sustainable business, valuable for the environment and the society. GB Reman shows precisely this: how remanufacturing companies can be versatile, flexible and switch to other markets swiftly.”
