Cummins has completed of construction of the Seymour Technical Center, a global engineering center office for the High-Horsepower Engine Business in Seymour, Ind., according to a news release.
The center is co-located with the Seymour Engine Plant in close proximity to 22 test cells dedicated to engine research and development work for mining, rail, oil and gas, marine, power generation and industrial applications.
The Seymour Technical Center is the global focal point for Cummins engine development and low-emissions technology for 19 to 95-liter diesel engine platforms covering a wide 500 horsepower to 5,100 horsepower range.
The center is also leading the development work for a new generation of clean, high output natural gas engines.
The technical center and the concurrent expansion of the manufacturing plant at the Cummins Seymour facility represent a major investment in Seymour. Hundreds of highly specialized engineers and technicians will begin working in the new technology-focused and collaborative office environment in the coming weeks.
With the 700 employees at the Seymour Engine Plant, Cummins will have more than 1,100 employees at the facility.
“With our laser-focus on meeting the needs of our customers, this technical center is a tremendous advantage in our quest to always be better, faster and first. This addition enhances our Seymour site, which is now truly an industry-leading facility for engine design, testing and manufacturing with world-class credentials,” said Ed Pence, vice president and general manager of Cummins High-Horsepower Engine Business.
