We're anxious because Chrysler unveiled a 9 speed transmission and delayed its release. Now ford and gm have a chance to make their own while we fumble around with gears.

Marchionne coming to Kokomo
CEO expected to make jobs announcement.
Chrysler Chairman and CEO Sergio Marchionne will join Indiana Gov. Mike Pence to make a major jobs announcement in Kokomo Feb. 28.
Chrysler officials confirmed Marchionneís visit, his second major public appearance in Kokomo since taking the reins at Chrysler, will be to announce investments and jobs to boost transmission manufacturing in Indiana.
State and local officials will join Marchionne and Pence, along with representatives from the United Auto Workers union and Chrysler company employees.
The event will begin at 11:30 a.m. at Chryslerís Kokomo Transmission Plant, one of several facilities in the Kokomo area where the company is investing in new equipment.
Kokomo Mayor Greg Goodnight, Tipton Mayor Don Havens, Tim Bressler, executive assistant to the vice president, UAW Chrysler Department, and Brad Clark, Chryslerís director of transmission operations, are all expected to attend the announcement. Media will have access to the event, which is not open to the public.
In December, Chrysler officials announced plans to invest $162 million in equipment in the former Getrag Transmission plant at the intersection of U.S. 31 and Ind. 28, in Tipton County. The company said it will create 850 new jobs at the facility with an annual payroll of $39.4 million.
In Kokomo, Chrysler officials announced last year they intend to produce the more fuel efficient eight- and nine-speed transmissions at the Kokomo transmission plants, where local officials approved abatements on what is expected to be a $1.3 billion investment in new transmission manufacturing lines.
Chrysler sales have been driving the investments. In 2012, the company reported a net profit of $1.7 billion. January 2013 sales were the companyís highest in five years.

Nothing new here. This is old news with everything to do with PR. Money that was to be invested at ITP is now going to be rerouted to Tipton. Engineering consolidated in Kokomo. We knew this 6 months ago.

So glad that governor Pence is coming to the plant after he opposed the bailout and then backed Murdouck on suing Chrysler. I am sure he will receive a warm welcome.

...at least Pence is now participating...then Gov. Mitch Daniel always seemed to find something else to rally around and would be in absentia when we had any good news to call a celebration...even when President Obama came to town...that was a sad reflection on the true un-bipartisanship that everyone suffered from then and unfortunately continues today as reflected by an unresponsive congress to wit an agenda that isn't to thier liking...
