Willow Springs Celebrates 20 Years of Production in 2024

This Summer, the Willow Springs, Missouri, production facility celebrates its 20th Anniversary. Associates gathered May 15th for an outdoor group picture (at left) in preparation for their July celebration.

The first Associates started in May of 2004 with production starting on July 6th of that year. On that first day, known as J-Day, 25 quality 350 Chevys were produced. Beginning with just 54 Associates in the Gas engine division and support groups, the Transmission division started in October of that same year.

Currently, through five engine PODs, and eight transmission PODs, upwards of 230 units are being produced daily. This has grown not only the facility to over 195,500 square feet through five expansions, but also an Associate count of nearly 350 strong.

To date, Willow Springs has added just over half a million combined units to the JASPER® sales numbers.
