JAMESTOWN, NY--(Marketwired - August 15, 2013) - Today Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) celebrates the production of the 1.5 millionth engine at its Jamestown Engine Plant (JEP) in Jamestown, New York.
The JEP, established in 1974, is one of the top five heavy-duty diesel engine producers worldwide with production in recent years typically exceeding 100,000 engines annually. The JEP also remains one of the company's largest manufacturing facilities, as it accounts for 12 percent of Cummins total engine production in 2012. In celebration of the 1.5 millionth engine, Cummins executives will join Jamestown employees today to recognize their efforts in this milestone achievement.
"Cummins has remained the leader in the heavy-duty North American truck market by consistently delivering engines with better fuel economy, reliability and durability. We credit much of our success to the hard-working employees that commit themselves every day to provide products and service that meet or exceed our customer expectations," said plant manager, Mike Abbate.
Jamestown is one of Cummins 28 worldwide manufacturing locations and produces many of the Cummins Heavy-Duty engines including the ISX15, the ISX12 and the ISM diesel engines. The flagship ISX15 engine continues to be the top-selling engine in the heavy-duty truck market with Jamestown total production exceeding 677,000 ISX15 engines since 2003. The Heavy-Duty Engine Plant is also in full production with the new high-performance Cummins Westport ISX12 G Heavy-Duty natural gas engine.
The JEP is the largest private employer in Chautauqua County, New York, with over 1,400 employees working in the 1 million plus square foot facility. JEP employees are committed to a team-based work system where the key values of trust, growth, equity and flexibility encourage employees to work together to achieve excellence.
"These key values guide how we work together as a plant, and as a team," said Abbate. "Employee commitment to these core concepts allows our plant to meet ever-changing business conditions."
The JEP employees are also heavily committed to their community. In 2012, 42 percent of Jamestown employees participated in community activities including a significant donation to the United Way. Additionally, employees have volunteered over 800 hours providing environmental support to the local lake for three consecutive years. The company will continue to increase its community involvement this year with a 2013 goal of 62 percent employee community participation.
