Canada Post Utilizes JASPER in LLV Project

Jasper Engines & Transmission played a major role in the recent refurbishment of several hundred Grumman Long Life Vehicles (LLV) used for Canada Post.

Canada Post recently refurbished 876 LLVs at their Mississauga, Ontario, facility. Each LLV received a JASPER remanufactured GM 2.2L four-cylinder engine. They also received new brake lines and additional LLV components supplied by Jasper Innovative Solutions.

"The LLV Refurbishment Project began in 2012 with an end goal of extending the useful life of our existing purpose-built, right-hand drive, LLV fleet," said Steve Clark, Canada Post National Fleet Director. "The refurbished LLV's, destined for mail and parcel delivery service in rural operations across Canada, needed to be reliable and sound for continued postal service use. The project represented a considerable investment of time, expertise and ingenuity, both internally and also from our valued external partners."

"As the project draws to a close, and the last LLV has crossed the assembly line, I am pleased to say that we have met our goals," added Clark. "This success would not have been possible without strong partnerships, extreme dedication, and an unparalleled commitment to produce a quality product."

"JASPER was honored to be a part of this program Steve put together," said Joe McDonald, JASPER Regional Vice President. "We trully believe at Jasper Engines & Transmissions that giving new life to fleet vehicles is an economical and green strategy that benefits all parties."

"The partnership that has come out of this endeavor between JASPER and Canada Post will undoubtedly create future opportunities to work together on other projects," said McDonald.
