ASI was founded by Barney Berlinger. The direction of our company was based on his vision for manufacturing transaxles that delivered superior performance and durability.
ASI produced more than over 60,000 transaxles annually and branched out into other markets and applications.
ASI built partnerships with leading Floor Care and Material Handling manufacturers through engineering and R&D initiatives.
ASI moved to a new facility, allowing it to double manufacturing capacity and increase engineering lab and testing areas.
ASI was utilizing brushless motor technology, advanced gear processing, lubrications and technologies which enabled us to establish a presence in both the Warehouse Automation and Robotics industries.
ASI developed custom material handling drives for the world’s largest online retailer.
Mr. Berlinger retired from daily operations and Doug Fastuca joined ASI as CEO.
ASI was acquired by The Accedia Group. Accedia also owns Tornado Drives located in Berlin. Tornado is a leader in gear drive systems for the Stair Lift, Elevator Lift and Door Lift markets. This acquisition significantly strengthens ASI’s design, manufacturing and service capabilities in Europe.
