Also celebrating its centennial, Allison will highlight its presence in Australia with expanded OEM availability and a strong customer support network.

BRISBANE, Australia - Allison Transmission will showcase its new TC10(TM) transmission and 5th Generation electronic controls while also celebrating its centennial at the Brisbane Truck Show, May 14-17.

"The Brisbane Truck Show is the ideal platform to discuss our latest products and celebrate our 100th anniversary," said Robert Cavagnino, Australia sales manager for Allison Transmission.

Allison traces its founding back to 1915. The company evolved from working on race cars to becoming a leading manufacturer of both aircraft engines and, beginning in the mid-1940s, automatic transmissions. Today, Allison Transmission is the world's largest manufacturer of fully automatic commercial-duty transmissions. The company has been delivering reliable, efficient transmissions to Australia for nearly 50 years.

At Booth 86, Allison will highlight its new TC10 transmission. Designed specifically for road tractors, the TC10has found growing interest in the U.S. and Canada where fleets have embraced the new 10-speed twin countershaft automatic, which has been delivering fuel economy improvements in real world day-to-day operations. Coupled with Allison's 5th Generation electronic controls, the TC10 offers improvements for both productivity and fuel economy. Fleet operators are experiencing fuel savings with TC10-equipped trucks compared to their fleet average.

"Outstanding product advantages, including the fuel saving benefits that our fully automatic transmissions deliver, have made Allison Automatics the transmission of choice in Australia," said Cavagnino.

Along with the innovative TC10, many traditional Allison models will be on display. OEMs such as Hino, Isuzu, UD Trucks, Fuso, Iveco, Freightliner, Daimler and Western Star will also feature a wide variety of Allison-equipped vehicles at the show.

Allison continues to grow its reputation as the leading supplier for Australian commercial-vehicle markets through new OEM releases. Most recently, four major Japanese OEMs in Australia have recently introduced Allison fully automatic transmissions in a variety of distribution trucks.

With reliable products supported by a network of dealers and distributors which span the country, Allison's strength and success have been built largely on its long-term commitment to customer service and support.
