Cummins to reduce presence at ConExpo
Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) announced today that its employees will refrain from attending the ConExpo trade show which is taking placing in Las Vegas from March 10 to 14.
The company made this difficult decision as a precaution to keep its employees and communities healthy and cited limiting participation in large gatherings as one way to reduce the spread of COVID – 19 (novel coronavirus).
Product will still be on display, and the company will collect attendees’ contact information at the Cummins booth (No. S84407) so representatives can follow up at a later date. Cummins also has already begun contacting customers and stakeholders to make them aware of this decision and reduce any inconvenience it may cause.
Last week, Cummins expanded its travel restriction on commercial air travel, both domestic and international, through Mar. 31. The company will continue to determine other actions to take to help reduce the spread of COVID – 19.
