What We Do

With over 1,600 associates, businesspeople who happen to be excellent remanufacturers, we’ve spent 35 years helping OEMs sell more parts and whole goods through custom remanufacturing programs for agricultural, industrial, construction, truck, marine, and automotive markets than anyone in the world.
Our associates are leaders in core logistics, disassembly, cleaning, machining, assembly and testing everything from engines and fuel injectors to large off-highway transmissions.
Our open-book culture (The Great Game of Business®) espouses transparency and integrity and gives associates a stake in the outcome.
We win or lose as a team. Our people make us better. That’s not an idle boast. It’s a fact that is our slogan and our legacy in the industry.
You might think that open-book management is simply sharing financial information, but that’s a small piece of a larger operating system.
We run SRC in a way that keeps everyone at all levels as informed, involved and engaged as an owner in making the company successful.
We create an environment in which the outcome is greater than the sum of its parts. YOU have a stake in the company’s—and YOUR—financial future.

We strive to hire and promote from within, and through succession planning individuals are given training, mentorship, and stretch experiences to prepare for future positions.
At SRC, employee owners are trained in the Great Game of Business® and to understand its practices. They are educated in financial literacy to impact the numbers and create wealth for themselves and the company.
We strive for team members and their families to live life to its fullest. We offer competitive comprehensive benefits including affordable healthcare & dental, ESOP and 401K with 5% match, quarterly bonus opportunities, and 100% tuition reimbursement.
