Cummins is expanding its High-Horsepower Technical Center and high-horsepower engine product line at its manufacturing facility in Seymour, Ind., which is expected to result in approximately 200 engineering and manufacturing jobs in the next five years, the company announced.
Cummins plans to invest approximately $100 million in the expansion at the Seymour plant, which currently employs nearly 450 people.
The company also announced today that it has changed the name of the facility to the Seymour Engine Plant, from the Cummins Industrial Center.
"Our high-horsepower business continues to grow in importance," president and COO Tom Linebarger said in a statement. "This facility and product line expansion will allow us to maintain our technology leadership and strong product portfolio. Cummins will continue to provide leadership as our customers face ever more challenging worldwide emissions regulations."
The technical center expansion will almost double the current engineering footprint in the facility and increase Cummins' high-horsepower mechanical development capability.
Construction is expected to be complete by mid-2011.
