Cummins starts production on engine 2 million

Cummins Inc has commenced production on its two millionth engine the power solutions manufacturer and supplier announced today.

The engine will be produced for Navistar and Penske Truck Leasing for an International LT series truck and is being built at the Jamestown Engine Plant (JEP) in New York.

As one of the largest manufacturing facilities owned by Cummins, the facility accounted for 14.7 per cent of the company’s total engine production in 2017.

According to the manufacturer, JEP has grown 20 per cent since 2012. Cummins Inc attributes international trade as the single most important contributing factor with more than half the company’s business currently determined by territories outside of the US including Cummins South Pacific in Australia.

“We credit much of our success to the hard-working employees that commit themselves every day to provide products and services that meet or exceed our customers’ expectations,” said Anna Dibble, Cummins JEP Plant Manager.

Jamestown is the home of Cummins heavy-duty engine technologies including the X15, ISX12, X12, ISM11 diesel engines and ISX12N natural gas engine as well as historically the ISX15 diesel engine and ISX12 G natural gas engine.

Cummins built its first engine in 1981. Production now exceeds 100,000 engines annually.
