IN MANY WAYS, CUMMINS ENGINES AND RELATED PRODUCTS ARE MORE COMPLEX THAN YOUR SMART PHONE. HERE'S SEVEN WAYS CUMMINS PUTS HIGH-TECHNOLOGY TO WORK FOR YOU:
Today’s society has become so dependent on electricity. Most of us can’t imagine functioning without it.
Who would have thought that a down internet connection could be hazardous to your health and state of mind? Imagine a holiday weekend with a house full of guests and one of the worst but typical thunderstorms hits the city. Immediately people begin using phones as flashlights.

Thankfully, Spring is finally here! Our landscape will gradually change from brown to green and will fill with pops of color from various flowers blooming once again. We’ll open our windows to let in fresh air and go out on walks to overload our senses with all that comes with Spring.

The event featured a group of ambitious entrepreneurs, each ready to make their pitch to a panel of business leaders with a lot on the line. But this wasn’t a television show. It was the Cummins Environmental Gateway project.
Cummins leaders in the U.K. invited suppliers in to pitch new ideas that could help the company reach its goals for reducing water and energy use and producing less waste. The result was more than 100 submissions, 28 finalists and 12 winning ideas that will now be tested at Cummins’ sites around the country.
So what do Americans like you do with $3,000 or so burning a hole in their pocket? You might think they go on a shopping spree or book a vacation, but Americans are actually quite practical with that extra money.
