Allison Transmission, Indianapolis, has added six new distributors to its European and Asia Pacific network of trusted partners in the past year.

These new distributor partners include Transmatic, serving Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States; IPO in Bulgaria; Tezana in Poland; Nimda in the Czech Republic; Heavy Automatics in Australia; and IIkerler in Turkey.

"This network expansion reflects the growing demand for automatic transmissions worldwide and recognition that Allison transmissions in particular are more fuel efficient, cost effective, reliable and durable," says Thomas D. Eifert, executive director of Allison customer support.
