Eaton has signed a multi-year, $250 million agreement to supply medium-duty truck transmission components to DaimlerChrysler in Brazil.

As part of the agreement, Eaton will deliver all internal components for each of four transmission models from its Mogi Mirim facility to the DaimlerChrysler plant in nearby Sao Bernardo/Sao Paulo.
Eaton said it will expand its newly constructed Mogi Mirim truck components facility to meet production requirements, and will begin delivering part-sets to DaimlerChrysler in June 2002.
When in full production, Eaton will ship 60,000 part-sets annually and employ 250.
