AER is a longstanding remanufacturing service center for General Motors. When the company's Hughes Electronics Division needed to solve challenge a big challenge with charging stations for GM's first electric vehicle, it turned to AER. Our service center became the designated remanufacturing partner for the EV-1 MagneCharge charging stations. Cost and location were driving factors, because, at the time, the GM’s electric vehicle lease program was only set to operate in California and Arizona, but the charge stations for those vehicles were made in Indiana. AER was already contracted with GM electronics manufacturer, Delco, for auto electronics remanufacturing, so contracting charger remanufacturing to AER was a strategic decision.
