CUMMINS GENERATOR TECHNOLOGIES (CGT) APPRENTICES IN THE UNITED KINGDOM HAVE BEEN WORKING ON A PROJECT THAT SOME ENGINEERS MIGHT ONLY DREAM ABOUT: RESTORING A 1930 MERRYWEATHER FIRE ENGINE.

CUMMINS HAS OPENED ITS FIRST TECHNICAL CENTER FOCUSED ON RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT IN REMANUFACTURING, A KEY COMPONENT OF THE COMPANY’S ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY STRATEGY.
The new center is adjacent to the company’s campus in San Luis Potosi, Mexico, which also includes a remanufacturing plant.
When it comes to actual damage, two elements cause the most--water from storm surge or relentless rains and wind. Secondary to wind and water are the destruction both leave behind. Power outages. Flooding. Building destruction.
CUMMINS RISK INSURANCE COORDINATOR CHRISTINA ECKERT HAS STRUGGLED WITH WEIGHT HER ENTIRE LIFE.
“When I lost a little, I’d catapult right back up the scale as soon as I stopped sacrificing,” she said. “In June 2016, I also had severe lower back pain and a torn heel. It hurt to walk, so I walked less. Then the Cummins LiveWell Center opened.”
CUMMINS MADE PROGRESS ON THE COMPANY'S GOALS FOR REDUCING ITS ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT IN 2016, ESPECIALLY FOR WATER AND ENERGY. THE COMPANY HAS ESTABLISHED NEW 2020 GOALS IN THOSE TWO AREAS.
“The environmental teams around the globe worked hard on making progress on our established goals and setting two new aggressive ones,” said Mark Dhennin, Cummins’ Director of Energy Efficiency and Environment.
