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.
