Caterpillar Defense and Allison Transmission strengthen ties

12th March 2020 - 17:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Allison Transmission and Caterpillar Defense are reorganising their relationship to work more closely on developing defence applications.

Caterpillar will continue to focus on the design, development and manufacturing of Cat and Perkins engines, whilst Allison will focus on the cross-drive transmission products.

The two companies announced on 11 March that they hope this will ‘bring to market deeply integrated and optimised solutions for the demanding defence markets.’

Dana Pittard, VP Defence Programs at Allison Transmission, said the deeper relationship with Caterpillar ‘will accelerate our ability to work together to design powertrain solutions that our mutual customers want’.

Meanwhile, Caterpillar Defense has secured the rights to become the preferred provider of services for Allison’s X200, X300, 3040MX products in North America. It is also the sole service provider for the X200, X300 and 3040MX in the UK.
