CoreCentric Solutions provides DIY-focused individuals, repair professionals and manufacturers worldwide with remanufacturing services on electronic controls and electromechanical parts for major appliances (ovens, microwaves, refrigerators, washers, dryers, dishwashers), fitness equipment, and heating, ventilation and air conditioning products (air conditioners, furnaces, water softeners). The 16-year-old independently owned appliance parts remanufacturer rebuilds more than 20,000 components each month for leading brands including Kenmore, Whirlpool, Jenn-Air, Kitchenaid, Maytag, Bosch, Thermador, Dacor, Electrolux, Frigidaire, GE, LG, NordicTrack, and Proform. Frequently ordered items include circuit boards, mechanical timers and icemakers.
Growing in popularity is the company’s quick-turnaround (as little as 48 hours) return-for-repair service designed for older appliances that require hard-to-find parts, or ones that are No Longer Available (NLA).
“Manufacturers routinely upgrade appliance features, which means that older models and corresponding repair parts are often discontinued, leaving frustrated and budget-strapped homeowners with no repair options,” explained Badal R. Wadia, CoreCentric Solutions President and CEO.
In today’s disposable society, CoreCentric Solutions fills the void, selling its products and services via phone (866-737-2244) as well as online at CoreCentric-Solutions-Store. The company’s parts are fully tested to Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) standards, and, whenever possible, are enhanced with the latest technical upgrades so that they perform as well as new ones. All come with a full six-month guarantee. The company also offers technical support via phone for those customers who need help with installation.
Repairing an appliance can save as much as 80% over a new purchase, according to Wadia, who holds a degree in electrical engineering. He estimates, for example, that a homeowner can save more than $2,500 by repairing versus replacing a circuit board on a brand-name oven. “We hear about spouses and technicians who become overnight heroes to their significant others and customers by using our services and products,” he said.
“The long life cycles of major appliances, and the monetary investment made by consumers at purchase makes the case for repairing. People also like the sustainable, ‘greener’ aspect of fixing something rather than discarding it,” he added.
By encouraging appliance repair, CoreCentric Solutions not only reduces the incidence of tossed appliances, but also uses discarded OEM parts to remanufacture new ones. Since early 2011, it has operated a program to collect used appliance parts from repair businesses throughout the Chicago area, where the company is based. Participating companies have an easy way to sustainably dispose of unwanted parts, while CoreCentric Solutions has a continuous supply of parts and components for remanufacturing.
The company has an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau, and holds an ISO 9001:2008 certification, meaning that its quality processes are consistently monitored and continually improved. For example, it uses a barcode monitoring process, meticulously tests all parts before shipping, and conducts frequent internal audits to verify that its remanufacturing standards are being upheld.
“Customers appreciate the fact that we’ve taken the business of remanufactured parts to a higher level, so that they get the same superior quality and the same superior results every time they order from us, while they save money in the process,” said Wadia. “We’re proud to be a quality leader in the remanufactured parts industry.”
