Cummins broke ground on its first fuel systems plant outside North America. Cummins Fuel Systems - Wuhan will be Cummins’ 13th production facility in China and is expected to begin production early next year.
Wuhan also is home to a regional Cummins service center and a technical center joint venture owned by Cummins and Dongfeng Motor Company. Cummins plans to invest approximately $10 million in the plant, which will assemble Cummins Common Rail (CCR) fuel pumps and CELECT injectors/fuel pumps primarily for the China market.
Cummins Fuel Systems designs and manufactures new and replacement fuel systems primarily for heavy-duty on-highway diesel engine applications. Much of the current production goes to the Company’s engine business, with Scania being Cummins’ primary outside customer.
