In 2013 Getrag invested US$219 million into new production capacities in China, Mexico and Europe as well as into resources to develop a new generation of dual clutch transmissions and hybrid applications. Furthermore the company created about 200 new engineering positions to support new product development.
Mihir Kotecha, chief executive officer, said that the company expects the global demand to shift into the direction of automatics in the long term. “Market data clearly shows that automatics are a continuously growing segment, and the DCT technology is the fastest growing within the segment. We are turning more and more into a DCT company offering the widest portfolio of DCTs in the world today already.”
For 2014 Getrag anticipates growth with a turnover of about US$4.8bn and 4.2 million transmissions sold and creating about 800 new jobs on a global basis.
