Allison Transmission Inc. announced it has manufactured its one-millionth 1000/2000 Series transmission. Jim Wanaselja, vice president of North American marketing sales and service for Allison Transmission, presented Bob Mann, vice president of dealer sales for Navistar Inc., with the transmission during a ceremony held at Allison’s world headquarters.

“Allison Transmission is proud to be able to share this important milestone with our valued customer, Navistar,” Wanaselja says. Mann appreciated Navistar’s involvement with the celebration. “On behalf of Navistar, I would like to express how much we value our corporate relationship with Allison Transmission, and what an honor it is to receive not only a great product, but a legendary one at that,” Mann says.

Allison’s 1000/2000 Series transmissions are used in a variety of applications, including distribution, construction, school buses, emergency vehicles and motorhomes. Allison fully automatic transmissions, with torque converter technology, are said to provide superior vehicle performance, increased productivity, reduced driveline wear and tear and lower overall vehicle lifecycle costs.
