Chrysler Taps Patti Engineering for  

Siemens TRANSLINE 2000 & Mitsubishi PLC/HMI Expertise  

Chrysler Fiat Patti Engineering has been fortunate to be a part of Chrysler's comeback.  Nicely recovered from bankruptcy in 2009, Chrysler has invested heavily in plant automation and modernization. Chrysler has been a true success story; rising up from the dust of the Great Recession. The success of Chrysler's tagline 'Imported from Detroit' sums it up, putting a smile on the face of many! Having added more than 10,000 new jobs since it filed for bankruptcy four years ago, Chrysler has hired more than 2,400 new salaried workers, and continues to build an exciting new generation of vehicles for American consumers.

Chrysler was the first domestic automaker to introduce an 8-speed transmission in its models, starting with the 2012 Chrysler 300S and Limited models. Advancing at the forefront of innovation, Chrysler started gearing up for the auto industry's first 9-speed transmission built in the Chrysler Transmission Plant in Kokomo, Indiana. The new 9-speed front-wheel drive transmissions enhance fuel economy and performance. Patti Engineering teamed with an OEM partner in implementing the equipment to build the new transmission.

WorkinSiemens Solution Partnerg with other partners and directly with Chrysler, Patti Engineering has been instrumental in a wide variety of projects at the forefront of technology advances in automation. With significant experience and expertise with the Siemens TRANSLINE 2000 and Mitsubishi PLC and HMI programming, PaMitsubishi Integratortti Engineering has completed projects for more than a dozen Chrysler plants - engine and transmission plants, as well as assembly plants.
