The new plant enhances exports capabilities

Cummins, the leading manufacturer of engines, generator sets and related components and technologies, announced the opening of its new plant for manufacturing low horsepower generator sets in the Special Economic Zone at the Cummins Megasite in Phaltan.

This new unit enhances the Company’s ability to produce generators for international markets in Asia, China, Latin America, Africa and Eastern Europe. This is the second Power Generation plant to open and overall the 21st plant of the Cummins Group, in India.

Our businesses in India have been growing significantly over the last decade and we expect this positive trend to continue in the future. Demand for exports will increase substantially with our cost competitive generators and as markets improve,” said Anant J. Talaulicar, Managing Director - Cummins Group in India. “The growing investment towards building capacities in India reinforces our confidence in the talent we have, our relatively low cost position and world class quality.”

The new plant, built with an investment of $ 17.5 million, spans 36 acres, and will manufacture open and enclosed low kilowatt generator sets. The plant will also add the capacity to manufacture an additional 23,000 units per year, in the initial phase, to the Company’s existing capacity of 38,000 units in its plant at Pirangut. The first plant of the Power Generation Business was commissioned in Pirangut in 2008 to manufacture generator sets from 7.5-160 kVA for both the domestic and overseas markets.

Tony Satterthwaite, President, Power Generation Business and Vice President, Cummins Inc., who is responsible for Cummins’ global power generation operations added, “We are thrilled to expand our capabilities in India.
