OUR QUALITY POLICY
Allison Transmission is committed to high quality products and services generating customer enthusiasm. This goal will be achieved by executing and continuously improving the Allison Quality Management System in support of the Allison Promise.
Throughout our long history, Allison Transmission has been a leader in innovation, creativity and continually pushing toward new advances in technology. Our heritage, starting in 1915 with James Allison, has been strong and steady throughout the decades that we’ve been creating fully automatic transmissions.
We were there from the beginning, with the invention of the world’s first heavy-duty automatic transmission, and even now Allison is the premier designer, developer and manufacturer of medium- and heavy-duty fully automatic transmissions and hybrid propulsion systems.
Our experience and longstanding history have made Allison the brand to trust. Read below to learn more about our history and heritage.
Allison Transmission is a well-balanced commercial, defense and engineering-based propulsion solutions provider. Our strengths are derived from our proven ability to leverage our most valuable assets — our people, our technology, our manufacturing capabilities and our unrelenting focus on creating value for our customers.
As a public company, we are responsible for driving our business forward to the benefit of all our stakeholders and providing our stockholders with a return on their investment. This will only be accomplished by our continued focus on quality, reliability, durability, vocational value and customer service.
While our constant desire to improve will change some of the things we do as a company, we will always continue to exercise ethical business practices, maintain a respect for the individual and run our business in ways that earn us the trust of those whom we encounter.
Throughout our history, we have been a wellspring of innovation, creativity and technological advances. And I am proud to say, Allison Transmission plans to continue its heritage of leadership in the markets we serve and in the communities where we live and work.
The efforts of our international operations continue to focus on expanding our market share outside of North America and we are pleased with the acceptance we are receiving. To that end, our market share continues to grow and our global footprint continues to expand. We also have a number of promising new technologies and products in our research and development pipeline and continue to pursue market driven product production launches.
As the generations who came before them, our people come to work with a pride and determination to deliver the very best for all our stakeholders. We continue to believe that our products, services and the value they add to our customers' businesses remain the fundamental elements of our continued success.
All over the world, Allison Transmission employees strive to make a difference in the communities where they live and work. We focus our efforts on education initiatives, economic empowerment and engaging our employees as we support their commitment to making a difference.
We are dedicated to helping our communities grow and thrive. Whether we are reducing our trash waste, improving facilities for energy efficiency, reducing fuel consumption, decreasing emissions through our products or volunteering for any number of causes, we want to improve the lives of people around the world.
For more than 100 years, as Allison Transmission has grown, so has our commitment to be a responsible and compassionate corporate citizen. Our founder, James A. Allison, recognized the power of community, education and innovation. In 1915, he donated funds to renovate and electrify a community church’s organ. In 1924, Allison used his resources to construct a hospital.
The Great Depression brought about a philanthropic awareness among Allison employees, and participation in improving lives and strengthening communities became part of Allison’s DNA. The phrase, “Quietly do good work,” came into being.
During the 1940’s, Allison employees devoted their resources to the war effort through blood donation and buying war bonds. Allison was instrumental in supporting the community through times of crisis. To this day, employees proudly roll up their sleeves to improve the lives of people in need by routinely participating in a whole host of activities and fundraisers that support the communities where we live and work.
Additionally, Allison Transmission is an avid supporter of being sustainable and eliminating waste through numerous initiatives. We want to focus our product development programs on value propositions that address the global challenges of improved fuel economy and to reduce greenhouse gases. Involved in the electric hybrid transit market for years, Allison is leading the way in shifting into the next phase to full electrification of propulsion systems. This allows our customers to reduce their consumption and environmental impact.
Allison Transmission focuses our limited resources on key issues that impact our communities in ways that directly align with the Allison vision and promise.
Allison Transmission has been dedicated to quality since our inception in 1915. We continually strive to improve our products and services through a commitment to our Quality Policy:
Through leadership in people, teamwork, innovation and continual improvement, Allison is committed to high-quality products and services generating enthusiasm from our customers. We’ll work to achieve this goal through a quality system and quality network strategies that create an atmosphere conducive to providing consistent customer value and quality.
