Both companies are committed to bringing customers the right power solutions at the right time to power their success.
The new joint-venture will continue its operations at the manufacturing facility in Hefei.
Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) and Anhui Jianghuai Automobile Co. Ltd. (JAC Motors) (SH: 600418) announced today that the two parties will form a 50:50 joint-venture after Cummins purchased Navistar’s 50 percent equity of the JAC-Navistar Diesel Engine Company (JND).
“I am delighted that Cummins is expanding our long-term relationship with JAC Motors, one of the most respected automotive companies in China,” said Steve Chapman, Cummins Group Vice President, China and Russia. “Cummins and JAC share similar values and are both committed to bringing our customers the right power solutions at the right time to power their success. By strengthening our relationship, we can focus on becoming more competitive in our markets by developing and offering high-quality, clean and fuel-efficient products.”
The new joint venture will continue its operations at the manufacturing facility in Hefei. Cummins currently supplies light-duty, mid-range and heavy-duty engines to JAC Motors for its domestic market in China as well as its global operations. The JV will continue offering customers leading NS V diesel engines and focus on developing new products that meet NS VI standards.
