GM 2.2L Engine

JASPER’s production of the GM 2.2L engine for the United States Postal Service (USPS) recently transitioned from the Wernsing Road facility (Jasper HQ) to Willow Springs, Missouri.  Associates of Gas POD 20 took the opportunity on April 7th to take a group picture with their last 2.2L USPS engine produced.

JASPER has maintained a National Contractor status, or National Ordering Agreement (NOA), with USPS since 2000.  Prior to the NOA, many USPS Vehicle Maintenance Facilities (VMF’s) were purchasing products from JASPER through local or regional agreements.

  From 1/1/2006 to 4/6/2021, JASPER sold 23,195 2.2L engines to the USPS.  Special thanks to National Accounts Manager, Kevin Smith, for finding this information.

March Madness!

March Madness has officially begun, and who doesn't love friendly rivalry. It's no secret that sports bring people together. There always seems to be an added layer of camaraderie when upping the ante in healthy competitions, such as bracket challenges.
We asked a few Associate-Owners how they choose their teams, and it was an even mix between team loyalty and random assignment.
Some even stated they pick purely on the color of a team's uniform.
So, who is winning on your bracket? And how are you deciding which team will make it to the final game?
