In 1915, James A. Allison founded what would become the company that bears his name. Innovative Allison engineers, designers and manufacturers began building racecars, evolved to developing aircraft engines and then introduced the world to heavy-duty automatic transmissions.
Today, Allison Transmission is the largest designer, developer, manufacturer and distributor of medium- and heavy-duty fully automatic transmissions and hybrid propulsion systems in the world.
Because we’re focused on understanding and satisfying the needs of our customers, we’re constantly analyzing, refining and improving our products and their features.

That’s why over 300 of the world’s leading commercial and military manufacturers specify Allison products for a wide variety of vehicles and vocational applications.
