Cummins expands and will add 290 jobs

Engine maker Cummins Inc. announced Tuesday it would spend nearly $220 million to expand a southern Indiana facility and potentially add 290 jobs in the next few years.

Cummins officials said the company plans to build a new assembly line, warehouse, office building and engineering and testing facilities at its Seymour plant because it expects exports of its high-horsepower engine to rise.

The company, which is based in nearby Columbus, unveiled the 4,000-horsepower high-speed diesel engine last year. It is 8 feet high and 14 feet long, and is designed to power locomotives, boats, mining trucks and offshore oil and gas platforms.

Cummins expects 70 percent of its sales of that engine and other new engines from the Seymour factory will be exports.

“The high-horsepower business is a growing part of Cummins and because of the demand for these products throughout the world we are able to add new high-skilled engineering and manufacturing jobs here in our home region,” Cummins Chairman and CEO Tom Linebarger said in a statement.
