Cummins CEO Marks Milestone for Jamestown Engine Plant

Global engine maker Cummins Inc. is celebrating the 40th anniversary of its Jamestown Engine Plant this week.

The factory– which builds primarily on-highway engines-– is actually located in nearby Lakewood, NY, a stone’s throw away from Pennsylvania to the south and Lake Erie to the west.

Cummins said more than 400 engines are now built per day at its Jamestown plant, which employs some 1,500 and produced its 1.5 millionth heavy-duty engine in the summer of last year.

“Demand is growing in on-highway markets in North America this year as the economy improves and we have gained market share in medium duty truck and bus markets,” noted Cummins Chairman and CEO Tom Linebarger in a statement, adding that, based on the company’s current forecast, the OEM expects its full year 2014 revenues to grow between 8% and 11%, up from its previous forecast of growth of between 6% and 10%, due largely to improving demand in North America.
