Cummins celebrated the production of the two millionth engine

Cummins announced the production of the two millionth engine at its Jamestown Engine Plant in Jamestown, New York. Jamestown Engine Plant remains one of the company’s largest manufacturing facilities; it accounted for 14.7 percent of Cummins total engine production in 2017. In the meanwhile, the company is also getting ready to celebrate its 100th year of activity. Cummins, in fact, started its passion for diesel engines way back in 1919 with Clessie Lyle Cummins.

Also, with 1,700 employees working in the facility, Jamestown Engine Plant has grown about 20 percent since 2012 and is the largest private employer in Chautauqua County, New York. International trade has been the single most important contributor to Cummins growth and hiring for nearly two decades.

We will continue to invest in innovations in our diesel and natural gas products, and Jamestown Engine Plant will be important to Cummins, our customers and our OEM partners for many decades to come».


The lucky buyers of the two millionth engine are…

Two of Cummins historical customers, Navistar and Penske Truck Leasing, are the recipients of Cummins two millionth engine.

Michael Cancelliere, President of Truck and Parts at Navistar said: «Navistar and Cummins have a strong history of working together to serve our customers. Navistar is excited that Cummins’ two millionth engine is going to one of our mutual customers in our International LT Series truck. We look forward to continuing our partnership with Cummins to bring value to our customers».

Finally, Cummins is planning to hold an employee appreciation celebration in August at the Jamestown Engine Plant to recognize those who have made this accomplishment possible.
