AREPA, a leading global provider of equipment restoration and inspection services, is pleased to announce that they were recently awarded the 2018 “Challenging Spirit Award” from Honda North America.
AREPA was given this award on February 8, in recognition of the customized recovery solutions they provided to Honda following the June 2018 flood that catastrophically affected auto and component production at their Celaya, Mexico plant.
“This acknowledgement from Honda is a true testament to all the hard work of the AREPA team throughout this project,” said Amir Rubin, AREPA North America Executive Director. Rubin went on to add, “While the impacts of the flood were devastating for Honda, the global team who responded to this project are fortunate to have been able to work with Honda personnel to ensure production resumed in a timely manner and that all affected equipment met the highest quality standards.”
Honda’s Andrew Silver, Plant Manager in Celaya thanked AREPA for their commitment and support throughout the recovery period, and presented the physical award to Miguel Hernandez, an AREPA/Envista engineer.
“Today is a really proud day for everyone at AREPA, and would not be possible without the dedication of so many people. I am humbled and honored to accept this award on behalf of the entire AREPA team,” commented Hernandez.
