Cummins celebrates 100 years

  • Published on Feb 6, 2019
  • Cummins kicks off its centennial celebration today with a simple message: “Challenge the Impossible.”
    That’s what the company has been doing since it was founded in a former warehouse in Columbus, Indiana, in February 1919, employing just four people. And it will be the mindset the now global company of more than 58,000 men and women embraces for the next 100 years.
    Clessie Cummins and his business partner, William G. Irwin, built Cummins around the concept when they adapted the diesel engine, a potentially groundbreaking technology at the time that had floundered in North America, for use in multiple applications. Little did they know their company would eventually expand to Brazil, China, India and the United Kingdom, to name just a few locations.
    The founders’ innovative and entrepreneurial spirit can be seen time and time again throughout company’s history and today through the advances Cummins is making in clean diesel and natural gas technology and in the exciting potential of electrification and other low-carbon alternatives.
    So, while the company will celebrate its history this year, Cummins will also embrace the company’s future challenges, both within its industry and in the communities where Cummins does business and its employees live and work.

    Wiring management is better the in 2006, 2014 , 2016 ! Sadly they still haven’t fixed the positive wire issue: YOU SHALL NOT TOUCH ! EVER ! Not on the ground ! And yes they touch ! That’s how you charge a smartphone wirelessly! ! Recall the thing move the various huge negative wire so they don’t touch the positive wire ! Only the positive is an issue over the whole truck The negative ! It doesn’t matter if it touch the negative , frame is live! But no positive can touch! Another exemple ! Behind footstep battery box! Computer wire use both wire as cpu wire support! NO, put Something between the negative and positive of Battery and air gap cpu wire from battery wire! Right now? All 4 have only anti-rub plastic ! Put a zip tie and they re squished together! When Cummins don’t have the positive wire touch issue everywhere( international assembly line is likely the culprit) cumin sound Laila smooth! But when positive wire get too close? Like the alternator big wire ! Or positive touch th e tube going in the intake (upper red metal tube in fron of air filter? All kind of unhealthy engine sound pop up ! AIR GAP PLEASE, second time I tell you guys! Last time was at the end of the twin can muffler
