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,
