Jasper Engines, Weller complete mergerApril 4, 2014
From local sources
JASPER — Weller Truck Parts is officially part of the Jasper Engines & Transmissions family.
The companies completed their transaction March 31. Jasper agreed to purchase Weller Truck Parts in a letter of intent signed by both parties in November 2013. Weller Truck Parts and Jasper will operate independently as they work together.
“Weller is a very respected brand with a great team. We are excited about the growth opportunities for both companies in their separate markets,” said Zach Bawel, Jasper Engines’ president and chief operating officer. “With this acquisition, it enables us to diversify into the heavy-duty truck drivetrain business.”
Weller Truck Parts started in 1973 as a growth of Weller Auto Parts formed by Harry Weller, Sr. and son, Jr. in 1930. In 1985 the 4 sons — Skip, John, Chris and Paul bought the business and began focusing on remanufacturing. Today with 800 associates, Weller has 29 production and distribution facilities remanufacturing a full line of heavy-duty transmissions and differentials.
