Camerota Truck Parts named Heavy Duty Remanufacturer of the Year

The Heavy Duty Remanufacturing Group (HDRG) of the Automotive Parts Remanufacturers Association (APRA) awarded Camerota Truck Parts its prestigious “Mike Hill Heavy Duty Remanufacturer of the Year Award.”

The award is given to a company or individual who has demonstrated innovative ways to create and grow a successful business model and in the process supported industry efforts to advance the science of remanufacturing.

According to Bill Gager, president of APRA/HDRG, the panel’s decision to award Camerota Truck Parts of Enfield, Connecticut this year’s award was because they are a leading independent remanufacturer in the aftermarket. “The recent emphasis of heavy duty engine parts remanufacturers as a constituent group within HDRG has expanded our horizons to an all encompassing view of the marketplace including independents, major OEM component suppliers, OEM service as well as the traditional rebuilders of electrical, drivetrain, brake and steering,” stated Gager.

Camerota Truck Parts celebrated their 50th anniversary in 2010 and was started by Salvatore “Sam” Camerota (father of the current owners – Frank, Salvatore and Stephen).

With headquarters in Enfield, Connecticut, other facilities are in North Haven, Connecticut; Westborough, Massachusetts; Bow, New Hampshire; Bangor, Maine; Valley Cottage, New York, and Hamilton, New Jersey.
