JASPER Purchases Adjacent Jasper Inn Property



Jasper Engines & Transmissions has acquired a majority of the adjacent Jasper Inn property along Wernsing Road for future parking and storage.

Under the purchase agreement, JASPER will acquire the Convention Center on January 1, 2017. The existing 130-room main hotel, dome recreation area, and various other areas of the hotel, will be acquired in July of 2017.

The remaining 67-unit Annex building, closest to US 231, will be retained by the Jasper Inn and be remodeled as a hotel, including an indoor pool and new reception area.

"It has been a pleasure working with the Jasper Inn organization," said Doug Bawel, JASPER Chairman/CEO. "As our company continues to experience significant growth, both in our number of Associate-Owners as well as physical size, parking and storage become an important need. The purchase of a portion of the Jasper Inn facilities will allow us to efficiently utilize our Wernsing Road facility, which is currently undergoing an expansion process."

"We see this purchase as a "Win-Win" for both of our organizations as well as means to revitalize the area surrounding both of our facilities," he added.

 

 

JASPER: Your One-Stop Source for Air & Fuel Components


JASPER's Diesel Division will have an additional 12,000 square feet of work space by
October 201
6.

In addition to remanufacturing a complete line of diesel engines, Jasper Engines & Transmissions offers a selection of diesel engine air and fuel system components, including fuel pumps, injectors and turbochargers.

Sales of air and fuel components has steadily increased, and JASPER believes it could be one of the company’s top divisions in the next five to ten years.

In preparation for this growth, and overall Diesel Division expansion, JASPER is adding 12,000 square feet of work space to its Wernsing Road remanufacturing facility. This project is scheduled for completion by October.

Diesel air and fuel components offered by JASPER include high pressure oil pumps, like the Bosch Rexroth Pump and Shepard Pump, the Stanadyne DS and DB2 pumps, along with a variety of Caterpillar Pumps. Every fuel injection pump is thoroughly tested and calibrated using sophisticated test equipment.

All Bosch injection pumps are calibrated on a state-of-the-art Bosch 815 calibration stand. HEUI high pressure oil pumps are tested on a custom-built test stand to provide a live simulation of in-the-vehicle operation.


Injectors include the HEUI 7.3 and 466, the 6.0 and 6.4 Bosch Common Rail and other popular applications.

As a Service Dealer for both Bosch and Stanadyne, JASPER’s Diesel Air and Fuel Component Division employs Associates who have been trained in original equipment specifications and processes.

 

JASPER is a Service Dealer for Borg Warner and remanu­factures, and stocks, most popular Borg Warner turbocharger applications. JASPER also remanufactures Garrett and Holset applications, plus many more. A core balancer and state-of-the-art component balancer are used in the remanufacturing process of every turbocharger. This assures exact component balance in order to assure optimum turbocharger performance and life.


In addition to the air and fuel components, JASPER of­fers accessories for the very popular International/Ford 6.0L diesel engine. These accessory items include heads, FICM (Fuel Injection Control Module) and EGR cooler.
