Jatco invests US$29.5 million in Aguascalientes
AGUASCALIENTES – With an investment of US$29.5 million and the generation of 100 and 400 direct and indirect jobs, Jatco launched the new AXO transmission for vehicles at its plant II in Aguascalientes.
Arai Takafumi, Senior Vice President of Jatco Ldt, explained that this new transmission model ,the most modern in the world for combustion vehicles, offers high efficiency in fuel saving, thus contributing to sustainable practices to protect the environment.
