Just in case nobody here knows about Allison

Here is what they say about themselves :-

We are the world’s largest manufacturer of fully-automatic transmissions for medium- and heavy-duty commercial vehicles, medium-and heavy-tactical U.S. military vehicles and hybrid-propulsion systems for transit buses. Allison transmissions are used in a variety of applications, including on-highway trucks (distribution, refuse, construction, fire and emergency), buses (primarily school and transit),motorhomes, off-highway vehicles and equipment (primarily energy and mining) and military vehicles (wheeled and tracked). The Allison brand is one of the most recognized in our industry as a result of the performance, reliability and fuel efficiency of our transmissions. We estimate that globally, in 2010, we sold approximately 60% of all fully-automatic transmissions for medium- and heavy-duty on-highway commercial vehicle applications, and we are well-positioned to capitalize on numerous attractive growth opportunities. For the year ended December 31, 2010, we generated net sales of $1,926.3 million, net income of $29.6 million, Adjusted net income of $273.7 million and Adjusted EBITDA of $617.0 million, representing a 32.0% Adjusted EBITDA margin.’

‘We have more new products under development today than at any time in our history. We are leveraging our success in hybrid transit buses to introduce a new hybrid-propulsion system for medium- and heavy-duty commercial trucks for which we received a $62.8 million cost-share grant from the DOE. We will pursue sales in the Class 6-7 and Class 8 straight truck markets as well as other end markets with this technology. We expect the first of these new products, for the medium-duty commercial truck market, will begin production in late 2012. The objective for this family of hybrid-propulsion products is to create an improvement in fuel efficiency of 25% to 35% for a typical vehicle, pendent upon vocation and duty cycle. We are also developing a new fully-automatic transmission for Class 8 tractors used in metro applications, which we believe offers better fuel efficiency and performance than manual transmissions and AMTs. We will continue to invest in these and other advanced fuel efficient technologies.’
