Jasper Engines and Transmissions recently broke ground on a 41,250-square-foot expansion to its facility in Crawford County, Ind. Upon its projected completion in March 2011, the Crawford facility will have increased in size to more than 408,000 square feet.

The expansion will allow the space needed to merge Jasper Innovative Solutions with the company’s distribution operations for a more efficient flow of finished product, along with allowing both departments to grow.

“Over the past six months, we have added over 45 new jobs to our Crawford Operation,” says Doug Bawel, Jasper president and chief executive officer. “With this new expansion, we will add a minimum of 10 additional jobs, along with room for needed growth.”

The Crawford County facility is located about 40 miles east of Jasper. Originally constructed in 1998 for the purpose of core processing, the Crawford County facility has evolved into a complete remanufacturing operation in the disassembly, machining, assembly and testing of gas engines, transmissions, transfer cases and select manual transmissions.
