Cummins Invests in Upgrading Existing Facilities, Boosting Clean Energy

April 3, 2023
The announcements come ahead of President Biden’s visit to Cummins Inc. during his Investing in America tour.

Cummins Inc. will support fuel agnostic engine platforms by investing more than $1 billion in existing Indiana, North Carolina and New York facilities. Additionally, the Fridley, Minnesota, facility will begin manufacturing electrolyzers for hydrogen-fuel-cell systems later this month.

“The electrolyzer production in Minnesota and investment in our Indiana, North Carolina and New York facilities are reflective of our dual path approach of advancing both engine-based and zero-emission solutions – an approach that is best for all of our stakeholders and our impact on the planet,” said Jennifer Rumsey, Cummins president and CEO.

The investment in the U.S. engine manufacturing network includes $452 million for the Jamestown Engine Plant in New York. The upgrade will support the production of a fuel-agnostic internal combustion engine platform that will run on low carbon fuels.

Information on upgrades to the Indiana and North Carolina facilities in an effort to decarbonize truck fleets will be made public at a later date.

The company’s zero-emission technology brand, Accelera by Cummins, plans to begin building electrolyzers at its Fridley facility starting April 24. This $10 million investment looks to amplify the domestic supply chain for zero-emissions vehicles. The production of this new product will support 100 new jobs by 2024.
