DDA Offers Expanded Product Line
And Streamlined Manufacturing
The Detroit Diesel Allison Divi- sion of General Motors has an- nounced a significant expansion of its product line by virtue of market- ing agreement with Deere & Compa- ny, and has moved to streamline and tighten its manufacturing oper- ations in North America. "With these moves, DDA is mak- ing clear that it intends to be one of the top diesel engine producers in the world," said Ludvik F. Koci,
DDA general manager and GM vice president.
To that end, DDA's marketing agreement with Deere & Company gives it s significantly broader base in the lower horsepower ranges. It will distribute John Deere engines ranging in horsepower from 50 to 250. "In the past, these engines have been used mainly in off-highway, industrial and agricultural applica- tions," Mr. Koci said.
The Deere engines in the 50- to 250-hp class will be designated as
Detroit Diesel Series 30 and 40, which include 13 individual engines to fit a wide variety of applications.
And with the integration of the
John Deere Engine Distributor
Group—per the marketing agree- ment—DDA has assumed responsi- bility for marketing the line and providing parts and service through its worldwide distributor network.
The availability of the Deer en- gines has also expanded DDA's die-

It marks the first time in nearly 15 years that DDA has offered a completely assembled genset and the line is expected to be expanded to include larger units up to 1,500 kw in the near future.

It is anticipated that the Series 30 and 40 diesels will also fit into
DDA's own extensive and highly favored line of marine engines for both commercial and pleasure boat application. John Deere engines have been used in marine applica- tions in the past and have acquired an excellent reputation for fuel effi- ciency, reliability and durability.
DDA now has set its sights on expanding the sale of John Deere- based marine models which aug- ment the present Detroit Diesel ma- rine line.
The consolidation is planned to include the modernization of DDA's
Redford, Mich, facility and the relo- cation of the division's parts ma- chining and 8.2L medium-duty die- sel operations from its current loca- tion in Romulus, Mich. "As the consolidation gains mom- entum," Mr. Koci observed, "it will trigger other changes in our manu- facturing operations, ranging from where and how we purchase our materials and components, to how we apply the most up-to-date tech- nology available to the manufactur- ing process."
