Cummins Inc. plans to build a series of new heavy-duty diesel engines in China starting next year, a move industry analysts say should help the Columbus-based manufacturer expand sales and boost its market share in Europe and Asia.
The new products, designed to meet a variety of emission standards throughout the world, will be available in 10.5-liter and 11.8-liter displacements once production starts in the first half of 2014, the company said Monday.
“The G Series global design approach is a vivid demonstration of how Cummins is transforming from a multinational to a truly global company,” said Steve Chapman, Cummins vice president and group vice president for China and Russia. “This engine platform has been designed for diverse and global markets by utilizing the expertise and local knowledge of our engineers from around the world.”
