Michigan-based manufacturing company Eckhart, Inc. announced today that it has acquired Gasper Engineering. Headquartered in North Vernon, the acquisition of Gasper will give the company wider access to a key market and a focus on “growing manufacturing employment in the state of Indiana,” according to Eckhart President and Chief Executive Officer  Andy Storm.

 Gasper Engineering is a one hour drive from three major US cities, giving it direct access to the largest shipping, logistics, grocery, appliance, and consumer packaged goods companies in the world.

Stephen Gasper, founder of Gasper Engineering, said in a news release, “Since our founding, Gasper Engineering has exemplified a servant mindset with customers. Exceeding customer expectations is in our DNA. We are proud of the strong reputation we’ve earned integrating highly engineered automation into the most technologically advanced industrial environments in the world.” Gasper continued, “I sold my company to Eckhart because they are committed to investing in our community. As an Industry 4.0 leader, their advanced technologies complement our core business and their turn-key suite of solutions bring real value to our customers. Eckhart’s commitment to grow in North Vernon and expand employment in Indiana is exciting.”

    • Ahh…Yes! Turning a Hot Mess into a Cool Breeze

      "Problems cannot be solved by the level of thinking that created them," is attributed to Einstein over 75 years ago. This still holds true, particularly in challenging communications. Many people address conflict at the level it was created by rehashing and building more evidence for their ‘side’ of an argument. Repeating a position tends to intensify the separation of people.
