Nissan Diesel Motor Co. has signed an agreement to provide China's Anhui Jianghuai Automotive Group Co. with technology it developed to produce and assemble midsize truck transmissions.

The Japanese truck and bus maker will also supply 1,000 transmissions a year to the Chinese commercial vehicle maker beginning at the end of this year.

The supply of transmissions is expected to bring in some 200 million yen in annual sales.

Nissan Diesel has been providing engines for microbuses to Anhui Jianghuai Automotive at an annual rate of 5,000 since 1998.
