HISTORY

Our History

Since our beginning, Automatic Spring Products Corp. has been dedicated to serving our customers, our employees and our community with excellence.

From a very humble start in the mid-20th century as a small spring shop, ASPC has grown to a multi-plant North American manufacturer with global reach. Our growth over the years has been fueled by a combination of superior product design, vertically integrated manufacturing, our 0 PPM strategy and our continually expanding BHAG product and process offerings.

1950     Foster Poe, our founder, purchases a five-man spring shop.

1960     Darell Moreland, Foster's son-in-law, leaves a Chicago architectural firm to join ASPC.

1975     Darell assumes the leadership role of president/CEO at ASPC. 

1980     Steven Moreland, Darell’s son, leaves Pratt Whitney Aircraft to join ASPC. 

1996     Steven becomes the new president/CEO of ASPC.

2000     ASPC builds the Hayes facility in Grand Haven, Michigan, for wire products. 

2007     ASPC purchases TB & Company, a precision shim grinder.

2008     ASPC opens a 44,000-sq.-ft. facility in Monterrey, Mexico.

2013     ASPC purchases the GRSS 4-Slide Division in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

2019     ASPC adds 16,000 sq.-ft. manufacturing space to our facility in Monterrey, Mexico.
