Jasper Engines & Transmissions was established in 1942 through the vision of Alvin C. Ruxer who at the time was the operator of a successful Ford dealership. In 1942, the Ford agency had seen continuous development. Jasper has been remanufacturing quality products since 1942. The company has over 20 acres under roof at six facilities; they are the nation's biggest remanufacture of gas and diesel engines, rear axle assemblies, transmissions, differentials, marine engines, performance engines, electric motors and stern drives.
Alvin Ruxer starts rebuilding gasoline engines to expand the life of present vehicles and provide another channel of income. This new operation originated in the 12 x 20 ft. wash rack of the Ford dealership and marked the starting of what would become Jasper Engines & Transmissions.

In 1989, Jasper entered the racing arena, when it sponsored Ken Ragan in three, Winston Cup races. Jasper Engines & Transmissions continues to be a sponsor, sharing that responsibility with Kodak. The number 77 Nascar Nextel Cup Jasper/Kodak Dodge is fielded by Penske-Jasper Racing and driven by Travis Kvapil. Penske Jasper Engines in Concord, North Carolina build the 800 horsepower engines. Penske Jasper Engines also supplies the engines to the Nascar Nextel Cup Series entries driven by Rusty Wallace and Ryan Newman. The transmissions and differentials for Kvapil are built at the Jasper, Indiana, and facility. The company also bears the title of an exclusive Nascar Performance Partner.

The company continued to develop; it became obvious that the engine was not the only component that held potential for remanufacturing. In 1957 they move the next logical step into the transmission business.
