Allison has signed distribution agreements with various chains for specific product lines in emerging markets such as China, Taiwan, Korea, India, Brazil and Mexico. Meanwhile the Carisma investment fund, which is the major shareholder in the Italian company, has injected €30 million into the company and will add another €3 million this year to help conclude a new long-term deal with its banks and to start up a new program to relaunch the existing business, now that it has been restructured. Allison plans to launch 500 new models this year and 600 in 2010.
