Operational Excellence

We’ve built a culture around building things better. That means parts that last longer, cars that are safer, wallets that are fuller, and an earth that is cleaner. 

Reverse Engineering Expertise

As remanufacturers, we hold ourselves to a higher standard of excellence. It’s not enough to simply know how to make a part—we also need to know how to diagnose a problem, find the solution, and ensure excellent results. And that ability only comes from a driven team of proven experts. 

We know why parts fail. After nearly 50 years of re-engineering, retooling, and reimagining worn-out parts, we’ve seen just about everything that can go wrong under the hood. With this experience, our engineers are able to anticipate and prevent many of the most common failures. We do more than just rebuild—we build it better.

Our team’s knowledge is grounded in customer feedback. We recognize that an innovation is only truly innovative if it solves a real-world problem, so we have a nationwide tech council to deliver direct, unfiltered feedback that informs and inspires our services. 

Our tech council is recruited from a diverse cross-section of shop owners and service managers who use Cardone products every day. They keep our finger on the pulse of industry needs, supporting our innovation with practical feedback and technical insight. 

We can guarantee these results because we inspect, redesign, and renew every part with integrity and innovation. Our success is demonstrated in each item of our 43,000 part inventory, which serves every model year from 1930 to today, across 90+ product lines.

At Cardone, we pour everything we have into building it better—and others have taken notice. We’re honored to have been recognized by industry peers for our innovation, visionary leadership, and lifetime achievements.
