We informed you right here in this Blog back in September of 2012 that ASE was chosen once again by the movie industry to supply products to the set to help support their filming. In this case, we supplied a Hein Werner transmission jack to the set to aid them in servicing the vehicles that would take part in the film.
The Sony Pictures film is set to premier on February 12, 2014. You may have already seen ads for it on TV. It stars Michael Keaton, Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman and Samuel L. Jackson. If it’s anything like the SciFi original, which was shot back in the 1980’s starring Peter Weller, it will be a great film.
You may remember we helped provide products and equipment to many major Hollywood films in the past, including –
Give us some feedback on the movie whether you like it or not. Just let us know how it is.

Well our latest contribution to tinseltown is a pair of Hein Werner heavy duty, low profile transmission jacks. When the producers of the remake of the cult classic 80’s hit film RoboCop need some shop equipment, they knew who to come to. After all, MGM and Columbia Pictures came to us for many other previous big hits because they know they can count on us for reliable equipment. We have a reputation of supplying them with the finest products in the industry in a timely manner, and we offer the support they demand.
The production is actually taking place in Toronto, Canada by OCP Productions Ltd. The production just began in August and the film wont be completed until August of 2013. The cast includes some big Hollywood stars such as Gary Oldman, Samuel Jackson and Michael Keaton as the bad guy. The director is Jose Padilha. The original hit was extremely popular and starred Peter Weller.
Below is concept artwork of the potential character, but is not necessarily what he will look like in the film. It’s just too soon to have any details. But hey, we had to throw some kind of picture up there.
We carry hydraulic and air Bearing Presses from several different manufacturers, including Ranger, AFF, Zinko, Omega and Hein Werner. Probably our finest quality presses are manufactured by Hein Werner. They’re made in the USA, boast some of the finest quality components and a great warranty. With all the manufacturers out there moving production offshore, it’s nice to see at least one manufacturer keeping some jobs here in the good old USA. The quality is what you would expect out of a USA made product as well. Only the best components and workmanship go into each Hydraulic Press. They have 25 years in the business and they have no plans of moving production offshore. With quality like this, you can count on them being around for 25 more years. They have hydraulic press models, air presses and electric press in 25 and 55 ton capacity models. They also have handy accessories that many of the economy presses don’t offer. They have arbor plate and punch plate kits that are very popular. Check them out today and get back to us with any questions.
We carry many great jacks by many different manufacturers. We require any car jack that we carry to be of a commercial quality, and to have rebuild kits and parts available. If they don’t, we won’t carry them. It’s that simple. Our customers are serious users and demand quality.
But there are some customers that require even more. Some customers want just the very best. And they won’t settle for anything less. That’s where Hein Werner Hydraulic Jacks come in. These jacks are top-of-the-line all the way. And the Best part – They’re made in the USA. Some customers require this of any jack they purchase. It’s getting more and more difficult these days to find this type of product that is still made in America.
We are proud to carry such a great product by such a fine manufacturer. We’ve been carrying their equipment for over 5 years, and have had tremendous feedback on them. When you purchase a Hein Werner Floor Jack, you don’t have to worry about the seals leaking six weeks after you get it. Buy with American confidence!
