Shafer Appointed VP of Jergens ASG Division

Bryon Shafer

Jergens has announced the appointment of Bryon Shafer as Vice President of the ASG division. The move comes amidst other corporate changes taking place that further increase Jergens' focus on manufacturing in the USA. With the new position, Shafer has global responsibility and oversees more than 50 employees that provide torque control, fastening and precision assembly tools to nearly 30 countries around the world.

"I am thrilled for this leadership role and eager to take on even more challenges," said Shafer. "ASG has a `think big' philosophy when it comes to making a competitive stance in the market. We will keep up the investments in R&D as we have these last three years, as well as continue seeking talented individuals to support our growth."

Shafer joined Jergens in 2008 as ASG general manager and has kept the focus on the company's ability to meet critical specification requirements for applications such as military, medical, aerospace and automotive. "We call these life and limb applications because in some cases it quite literally is just that, and consequently there is no room for error," said Shafer.

ASG got its start in the mid 1970s with torque control screwdrivers and other assembly products and solutions for customers in several industry segments. It became an official Jergens division 10 years later, and in 2010 transitioned from wholesale distribution to manufacturing. Through ASG Express, Precision Fastening and Automation, customers can choose from specific devises to entire systems for their assembly needs.

Prior to joining ASG, Shafer's experience had centered in light manufacturing, including multiple start-ups. He is a graduate of Ohio University.
