Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) today announced the inauguration of its new state-of-the-art technical center. Located at the Kothrud campus in Pune, Maharashtra, Cummins Technical Center India is equipped with world-class laboratories, engine test cells and engineering facilities. 

“We see real opportunities for continued growth in India,” said Tom Linebarger, Cummins Inc.

The four-story building is impressive with seating capacity for 2,500 professional engineering staff. The new office features collaborative workspace that will support diverse work styles, preferences and backgrounds for all employees. It will promote employee well-being through the use of light, art and design and productivity through amenities and technology. The office space includes a flexible learning center to support education, training and team building.

The facility houses 36 engine test cell slots; two turbocharger rigs; one emissions burner test rig; eight product line specific labs; and nine shared services labs. These are the physical assets required to support every global business and product line the Company produces.

“We are focused on capable infrastructure, capable people and delivering our brand promise of innovation and dependability. We have been and continue to be committed to growing our engineering capability in India,” explained Mark Firth, Executive Director – India Engineering.

The Company has significantly invested in India throughout the past five years. Cummins first invested in India in 1962, breaking ground on a facility in Pune. Today, the Cummins technical organization in India plays an important role in developing and supporting Cummins products across Cummins markets in India and around the world.
