DAPHNE, Ala. – Don Bigler, current board member and one of BBB’s founders, received the Remanufacturing Industries Council (RIC) ACE Award at the 2019 RIC-RIT World Remanufacturing Conference held in Rochester, New York.

In addition to the recognition, a scholarship in Bigler’s name will be established to encourage future industry leaders to become more engaged with remanufacturing before graduation.

“I am grateful to receive such a prestigious award, and it’s an honor to have BBB’s impact on remanufacturing recognized,” Bigler said. “Organizations like the RIC are critical to the awareness of remanufacturing and its continued growth. I hope we build upon our current efforts to inspire the next generation to pursue a career in the industry.”

“It has been our honor to present Don with the Advocate ACE Award. Don’s dedication and commitment to the reman industry over the past 30 years set the stage for so many others in the industry,” said Jenn Brake, RIC’s director of marketing and membership.

The Remanufacturing ACE Awards is an international competition sponsored by the Remanufacturing Industries Council. Nominations are judged by a panel of industry leaders and partners from the RIC Remanufacturing Association Alliance. For more information, visit
