Cummins seeks out joint opportunities with Isuzu

Cummins Inc. and Isuzu Motors Limited have signed a Letter of Intent for the evaluation of joint opportunities to deliver global competitive products.

The corporate group of the global engine manufacturer, Cummins Inc. is projecting significant investment towards the best next generation diesel and natural gas based powertrain solutions.

It will also devote increased focus to alternative powertrains, connectivity and autonomy in order to meet its customer demands moving forward.

Stringent emissions regulations and the changing nature of power sources have made collaboration and strategic partnerships crucial to sharing increased investment costs for original equipment manufacturers looking to grow in the market according to Tom Linebarger, Cummins Chairman and CEO.

“Isuzu is a leading global company with a reputation for excellence in trucks, powertrains and customer service,” he said.

“Our companies share a commitment to technology leadership, quality and dependability for our customers, and global reach. We also share common values in the way we do business and how we treat our people, our customers, and our partners.”

“Cummins is honoured to be working with Isuzu and to explore how to leverage our respective strengths to create new opportunities for both companies.”

The future partnership is anticipated to benefit both companies as they look to amplify their unique strengths having provided technology innovation in complementary regions of the world for over 100 years.

In a statement Cummins confirmed that each company will assign a team of individuals over the following months to explore opportunities in product technology development, service and potential areas of collaboration with the potential for a longer-term partnership for the next generation of diesel and natural gas based internal combustion powertrains.

This includes new powertrain technologies such as electrification.

The engine manufacturer said it expected diesel engines would continue to be the power leader in commercial vehicle and off-highway markets for the foreseeable future.
