Cummins Fuel Systems Plant in China Begins Production

Cummins has opened its first fuel systems manufacturing site outside of North America, the Cummins Fuel Systems Wuhan Plant in China. Cummins has made an initial investment of $10 million into the plant, which will manufacture Cummins Common Rail fuel pumps and CELECT injectors/fuel pumps, primarily for the China market.

The Cummins Fuel Systems Wuhan Plant joins Cummins Turbo Technologies (formerly Holset) and Cummins Filtration (formerly Fleetguard) to become the third Cummins components business unit with local production in the China diesel market. When Cummins opens its Emission Solutions exhaust aftertreatment plant in Beijing later this year, Cummins will be the only foreign maker capable of manufacturing products in all four critical engine sub-systems—filtration, air handling, fuel systems and exhaust aftertreatment—in the emerging China market.

Cummins Fuel Systems designs and manufactures new and replacement fuel systems primarily for heavy-duty on-highway diesel engine applications. The Cummins Engine business and Scania are the primary customers for the fuel systems business. Scania is Cummins’ partner in two fuel systems joint ventures.

The Cummins Scania HPI joint venture currently manufactures fuel systems that are used by both companies in current products. In August 2005, the Cummins-Scania XPI Manufacturing LLP (Cummins-Scania XPI) joint venture was formed to design, develop and manufacture the next generation of fuel systems for use in 2007 and beyond. In addition to the new plant in Wuhan, Cummins Fuel Systems has production operations in Columbus, Ind.; El Paso, Texas and Juarez, Mexico.

Wuhan, the capital city of central China’s Hubei Province, also is home to a regional Cummins service center and a technical center joint venture owned by Cummins and Dongfeng Motor Company.
