Cummins to Invest over $1 Billion in Upgrading US Facilities


Cummins Inc, a diesel and natural gas engine manufacturer, is investing more than $1 billion into upgrading its facilities across the U.S. to support clean energy technologies. Facilities in Indiana, North Carolina, and New York are among those that will be upgraded, enabling the use of fuels such as natural gas, diesel and eventually hydrogen. Leading the charge, Cummins Chief Executive Jennifer Rumsey stated that the investment reflects a dual path approach to advancing both engine-based and zero-emission solutions.

The investment, which is in addition to the $1.5 billion announced last month, comes ahead of President’s Joe Biden’s visit to the Cummins Fridley, Minnesota facility as part of his Investing in America tour. The move is in response to the trucking industry which is anticipated to be subject to tougher greenhouse emission regulations this year.

It offers services to customers through locations in North and South America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and India.
