Reliable transmissions for a wide range of applications.

Truck Classic

Performance driven to the extreme.

Our range of service extends from 6-speed to 16-speed transmissions for vans, heavy-duty commercial vehicles and buses as well as for cranes and special vehicles. An extensive selection of power take off units, transfer cases and several circuit variants ensures that a custom-made transmission system can be developed from standardized components. All transmissions are manufactured on a large scale by Mercedes-Benz Commercial Vehicles and are engineered to meet the highest standards of technology and quality.

To meet the demands of our customers is the focus of our work. We feel committed to advance the design of our systems in a consistent and innovative way in line with market and customer requirements.

With decades of experience in the manufacturing and development of commercial vehicle transmissions, we possess a unique manufacturing expertise, which distinguishes our transmissions today particularly by three features:

  • Very smooth running characteristics
  • Low weight
  • Extreme durability

In the future, we will continue to stand for innovative products focused on customer-oriented applications.
