Remy inks deal to supply hybrid motors to Allison

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Pendleton-based Remy International on Thursday said it has signed a long-term agreement to provide electric motors to Allison Transmission for commercial hybrid trucks.

Financial terms of the 10-year contract with Indianapolis-based Allison were not disclosed. The motors will be produced at Remy’s Anderson factory.

Remy and Allison, both former General Motors units, previously worked together to develop hybrid bus powertrains “and are now looking forward to a long partnership in the hybrid commercial truck sector,” said John Weber, chief executive officer of Remy.

Remy’s hybrid motor applications include those used in GM’s Denali and Cadillac Escalade hybrid SUVs. Remy also has a supply contract with Daimler AG.

Last October the company announced a line of off-the-shelf electric motors for hybrids as a more cost-effective alternative to custom applications for automakers.
