Eaton Corp. has signed a business agreement through 2014 with India’s largest automotive manufacturer, Tata Motors. Under the terms of the agreement, Eaton’s Truck Group will supply heavy-duty synchronized transmissions to Tata Motors for use in its World Truck program in India, as well as in global markets.

Terms of the agreement were not disclosed. Eaton will initially produce the transmissions at its plants in Tczew, Poland, and Wuxi, China, with production moving to its new facility in Pune, India as volumes increase, the company said.

“We are very pleased to work with Tata on this important project,” said Pavan Pattada, country manager for Eaton’s Truck Group in India. “Eaton’s breadth of advanced technology and transmission product lines enabled us to tailor a diverse line-up of transmissions to meet customers’ needs in any environment, in any region.”

Tata Motors, part of the Tata Group, had revenues of $8.8 billion in 2007-2008, and has operations in the UK, South Korea, Thailand and Spain through subsidiaries and associate companies. It is the world's fourth-largest truck manufacturer and the second largest bus manufacturer.
