Jasper Engines & Transmissions kicked off a business simulation project with Loogootee High School (LHS) in Indiana. Since the beginning of the program, at the start of the 2016-2017 school year, the program’s intention has been to introduce high school students to LEAN principles, and life skills, that will better prepare them for future career opportunities. The program is a partnership between JASPER, the DirectEmployers Association and Loogootee High School.
Did you know that Remanufacturing is Recycling? Have you considered how your decision to make a major repair to your vehicle affects our environment? We have researched how much energy JASPER utilizes in the remanufacturing process and compared it with information from the Argonne National Lab, a research center for the U.S. Department of Energy.
Nearly 160 members of the Willys-Overland-Knight Registry (WOKR) held their 56th Annual International Meet-up in Jasper, Indiana. During their June 20-23 visit, many of the members took time to tour JASPER's Wernsing Road and Power Drive facilities.
The WOKR was established to bring together people interested in the preservation of vehicles powered by "seeve-valve" engines, or the related family of Willys-Overland vehicles from 1903 to 1942. Nameplates included: Willys, Overland, Whippet, Stearns, Marion and other vehicles powered by a Knight sleeve-valve engine.
Ridetech, a well known Jasper-based high performance auto supplier, hosted a brand new street car event appropriately named Road Trip-Cars and Cones 2016. Around one hundred thirteen drivers registered for the event which featured four autocross events in five days with a scenic cruise route which wound through North Carolina, Tennessee and Kentucky, ending with a dinner and after party at Ridetech's facility here in Jasper, Indiana.
Chris Rhinehart, an event participant, from Frederick Maryland, experienced engine trouble near Bowling Green, Kentucky. Rather than have his Nova towed all the way back home, Chris decided to have it towed to the Ridetech facility and purchase a JASPER engine. Chris contacted Jasper Engines & Transmissions and spoke with veteran Authentic/Performance Sales Rep. Larry Salmon, who discussed Chris' options and arranged the delivery of a JASPER Class-1 Chevrolet 350 engine on Friday.
Saturday morning at 7AM, Chris and three of his buddies began the engine exchange and and by two o'clock in the afternoon the Nova was purring and as good as new. Chris ended his weekend on a happy note with a smooth 800 mile cruise back to Maryland. We would like to thank Chris for his engine purchase and hope he enjoys his JASPER-Powered Nova at many more autocross events!
