Cummins Inc. could possibly delay breaking ground on a 100,000-square-foot information technology and digital hub in Greenwood (Ind.) as the company attempts to reduce costs and capital expenditures during the pandemic.
The facility, which would be located at the southeast corner of Interstate 65 and County Line Road, is estimated to bring at least 500 jobs to the city, with the possibility of up to 1,500 jobs if a second phase is built.

Company spokesman Jon Mills confirmed that the Greenwood project could possibly be delayed and expects to have more information later this week.
It is not clear when the project would break ground or if any potential delay would impact the project’s completion date or the number of jobs the facility is projected to create.
“We like the project a lot,” Cummins Chairman and CEO Tom Linebarger said Monday. “Having said that, in the context of our current environment where it’s very clear demand is going to drop precipitously this year, we’re having to look at every single project we have and make sure that we understand which ones we can delay, which ones we need to cancel, which ones we need to push ahead at the same rate, and what we decided with this one is that we are going to need to postpone the start of the project, the groundbreaking.”
