Shown is an artist's rendering of the new Allison Transmission manufacturing facility in Hungary, which is expected to produce 3000, 4000, and Torqmatic Series fully automatic transmissions for European and international customers.

Allison Transmission Inc. announced its plans to build a new state-of-the-art manufacturing plant in Szentgotthard, Hungary. Following both corporate and local governmental approvals for the new manufacturing facility, Allison Transmission intends to launch the project as soon as possible. The land for the new facility was officially acquired in September, followed shortly thereafter by a groundbreaking ceremony in preparation for construction. Allison Transmission has benefited from a 10-year manufacturing relationship with Opel Hungary in Szentgotthard, where it developed successful production collaborations during the late 1990s. Initially, workers in Hungary co-produced Allison Torqmatic and 3000 Series fully automatic transmissions, which are widely used in city buses as well as in construction, distribution, pickup and delivery, fire and emergency, terminal tractor, shuttle, utility, refuse, wheeled military, and other applications. The company expanded its Hungarian operations in 2005, with co-production of the 4000 Series transmission beginning that same year.
