Allison Transmission launches production in India

Allison, the world’s largest manufacturer of fully-automatic transmissions for medium and heavy duty commercial vehicles, has announced that its Chennai, India manufacturing facility is now producing the Allison 1000 and 2000 Series transmissions.

Over one million of these transmissions have been produced at Allison’s Indianapolis (USA) facility since 1999.

“Our growth outside North America will be facilitated by our established relationships with OEM’s worldwide, and operations such as our Chennai multi-purpose facility,” said Lawrence E. Dewey, Chairman, President and CEO of Allison Transmission.

“Markets outside North America represent a growth opportunity for Allison where we are strengthening our presence and we believe opportunities for increased market share exist.”

The Chennai operation has been manufacturing high-quality precision vehicle drive train components for nearly two years and has served as a transmission Customisation Centre for almost a year. Allison Customisation Centres around the world configure transmissions to specific OEM’s requirements prior to delivery which reduces assembly costs and shortens vehicle build times.
