Rheinmetall’s Castings business unit recently booked a new order from “a well-known truck manufacturer” for gearboxes specifically designed for use in e-trucks.
The five-year production run will begin in the first quarter of 2026. However, Rheinmetall and the manufacturer have agreed to a total project lifetime of more than 15 years. The gearboxes will be supplied as fully machined components, which will result in synergies for the Rheinmetall Group, since casting will take place at its plant in Neckarsulm and final machining at its Langenhagen facility.
The company’s e-truck is still at an early stage of development. By cooperating with an established truck producer, the Group aims to jointly develop its gearboxes and introduce them throughout Europe.
