Walbridge upgraded Chrysler’s Kokomo Transmission Plant (KTP) and Indiana Transmission Plant (ITP-1), where its “8R45” eight-speed rear-wheel drive and “EP2” front-wheel drive transmissions are manufactured.

The project scope included the relocation and reutilization of existing assets at both facilities for the 8R45 transmission program and installing new equipment for the EP2 transmission program. New equipment will be installed for final assembly, sub-assembly and aluminum machining lines. The project includes facility, site, building and infrastructure modifications to prepare KTP and ITP-1 for the future installation of manufacturing-process equipment, consisting of approximately 430 machine tools and 500 assembly operations.
