Rich in history and tradition, AER began
operations in the early 1940s in the back of a local
automobile dealership in Texas. With steel and iron supplies
in short supply, and the country and production lines focused
on WWII, Henry Ford sought ways to keep the automobile
industry alive and cars and trucks running at home.
The idea for remanufactured engines and
engine parts was born.
Ford contracted trusted suppliers who could
recycle and remanufacture crucial parts to Ford Motor
Co. specifications. As a result, AER became one of the first
Ford authorized engine remanufacturers in the country.
High-quality remanufactured partsmade
to the demanding standards of original equipment manufacturersis
as valued today as it was 60 years ago.
