Cummins Inc. is a Fortune 500 corporation that designs, manufactures, distributes and services engines and related technologies, including fuel systems, controls, air handling, filtration, emission control and electrical power generation systems. Headquartered in Columbus, Indiana, United States, Cummins sells in approximately 190 countries and territories through a network of more than 600 company-owned and independent distributors and approximately 6,000 dealers. Cummins reported net income of $1.75 billion on sales of $18.00 billion in 2011.
Cummins is the largest producer of diesel technology.
Founded in Columbus, Indiana, in 1919 as Cummins Engine Company, for its namesake Clessie Lyle Cummins, the fledgling firm was among the first to see the commercial potential of the engine technology invented two decades earlier by Rudolf Diesel.
After a decade of fits and starts, in 1933, the company released the Model H, a powerful engine for transportation that launched the company's most successful engine family. J. Irwin Miller became general manager in 1934 and went on to lead the company to international prominence over the next four decades. By marketing high-quality products through a unique nationwide service organization, the Company earned its first profit in 1937. Three years later, Cummins offered the industry's first 100,000-mile warranty.
By the 1950s, the US had embarked on a massive interstate highway construction program, with Cummins engines powering much of the equipment that built the roads and thousands of the trucks that traversed them. Truckers demanded economy, power, reliability, and durability, and Cummins responded. By the late 1950s, Cummins had sales of over $100 million and a commanding lead in the market for heavy truck diesels.
As Cummins continued to grow its business in the US, the Company began looking beyond its traditional borders. Cummins opened its first foreign manufacturing facility in Shotts, Scotland, in 1956 and by the end of the 1960s, Cummins had expanded its sales and service network to 2,500 dealers in 98 countries. Today, Cummins has more than 5,000 facilities in 197 countries and territories.
Cummins, led by J. Irwin Miller, forged ties to emerging countries such as China, India and Brazil, where Cummins had a major presence before most other US multinational companies. Cummins has grown into one of the largest engine makers in both China and India, and for the past three years approximately half of the Company’s sales have been generated outside the US.
Cummins was the only company in the industry to meet the 2010 Environmental Protection Agency standards for NOx emissions with the release in early spring of 2007 with its new 6.7-litre turbo diesel for the Dodge Ram Heavy Duty pickup truck, available with 3/4 and 1 ton chassis.
In 2008, Cummins was a named defendant in a class action suit relating 1998-2001 model year Chrysler Dodge Ram trucks, model 2500 or 3500, originally equipped with a Cummins ISB 5.9 liter, diesel engine built using a pattern 53 Block. The case has been settled, but some qualified Chrysler owners may receive $500 for repairs to the block, which was alleged to crack and create a coolant leak.
Business Units 
Cummins Engine Business 
Manufactures and markets a complete line of diesel and natural gas-powered engines for on-highway and off-highway use. Its markets include heavy-and medium-duty truck, bus, recreational vehicle (RV), light-duty automotive and a number of industrial uses including agricultural, construction, mining marine, oil and gas and military equipment.
For the general public, the most visible Cummins product may be the 5.9-liter in-line six-cylinder engine used in the Dodge Ram light duty pickups starting in 1989.
In 2007, a 6.7-liter version of the Cummins straight six engine became optional on the Dodge Ram pickup (standard with the class 4 and class 5 chassis).
In April, 2013 Cummins using technology developed by Westport Innovations began shipping large natural gas fueled engines to truck manufacturers in the United States as trucking companies began converting portions of their fleets to natural gas and and the natural gas distribution network in the United States began to expand.
Cummins Power Generation Business (formerly Onan) 
Global provider of power generation systems, components and services in standby power, distributed power generation, as well as auxiliary power in mobile applications to meet the needs of a diversified customer base.
Cummins Filtration (Fleetguard) 
Designs, manufactures and distributes heavy-duty air, fuel, hydraulic and lube filtration, chemicals and exhaust system technology products for diesel and gas-powered equipment.
Cummins Turbo Technologies (Holset) 
Designs and manufactures turbochargers and related products, on a global scale, for diesel engines above 3 liters.
Cummins Emission Solutions 
Develops and supplies catalytic exhaust systems and related products to the medium-and heavy-duty commercial diesel engine markets.
Cummins Distribution Business Unit (DBU) 
The DBU consists of 17 Cummins owned distributors and 10 joint ventures, covering 90 countries and territories through 233 locations.
Cummins Turbo Technologies 
In 1973 the company was purchased by Cummins after briefly being owned by the Hanson Trust. Holset now operates facilities in China, India, Brazil, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
In 2006, the division officially changed its name to Cummins Turbo Technologies to be identified more closely with its parent company. The turbocharger products still use the Holset brand name.
Cummins Power Generation 
In 1986, Cummins began acquisition of Onan and completed it in 1992. Since then, Onan has evolved into Cummins Power Generation, a division of Cummins. The Onan name continues to be used for modern versions of their traditional engine-driven generators for RV, marine, commercial mobility, home standby, and portable use.
Cummins Emission Solutions 
Exhaust and emissions after-treatment company Nelson Industries was purchased in 1999, due to the increasing importance of exhaust after-treatment systems for meeting future emissions standards. The division officially changed its name to Cummins Emission Solutions, in order to be identified more closely with their parent company.
High-horsepower (larger than 19 liters displacement) engines are manufactured in Seymour, Indiana, Daventry, England, and Pune, India. Heavy duty (10–19-liter displacement) M and X series engines are manufactured in Jamestown, New York. The B, C and L series engines are manufactured in numerous plants across the world.
