About Cummins

Cummins are global leaders in the diesel engine, power generation, turbocharging and emissions solutions markets.
With manufacturing plants in 14 countries, 55,000 employees, turnover of $19.1 billion in 2015, you would be joining an organisation that offers flexible career paths and opportunities on a global basis.

Key markets are off-highway vehicles, industrial equipment and power generation. In addition, Cummins provides turbochargers for the automotive sector, along with filtration and acoustic systems, natural-gas engines, engine components and electronic systems. Cummins engine installations vary from the world’s highest altitude rail vehicles in the mountains of Tibet to some of the biggest mine trucks around the world.

Today, innovation is just as critical to our success as it was in the early days of our Company. With our mature market emissions near zero, our focus now is on improving product efficiency and understanding our customers’ needs better than anyone else through the development of strong partnerships.

What makes Cummins different is the way in which we take the time to understand our customers and then exceed their expectations by always being the first to market with the best products. The other advantage Cummins has over the competition is that we produce and supply superior integrated power systems, making us a one-stop shop for all of our customers’ needs.

Understanding our customers’ needs before they do and applying the creative ingenuity to make us better, faster, first, is the key to our future success in an increasingly competitive environment.

With "Innovation You Can Depend On" Cummins will see the future first and beat our competition to it.
