Green Technology News: Cummins (NYSE: CMI) Breaks Ground for New Emission Solutions Plant in Germany
MARKTHEIDENFELD, GERMANY - April 19, 2013 (Investorideas.com renewable energy newswire) Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) today broke ground for a new plant and office building for the Company's Cummins Marktheidenfeld (CMHF) business at a ceremony attended by Cummins Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Tom Linebarger and Marktheidenfeld Mayor Helga Schmidt-Neder.
The new facility will house a state-of-the art plant where Cummins Emission Solutions, a subsidiary of Cummins Inc., will design and manufacture selective catalytic reduction (SCR) dosing systems, a critical part of the emissions controls for diesel engines.
"Our decision to construct this new building here in the heart of Germany will allow us to provide high quality products, service and support to our customers throughout Europe and the world," Linebarger said. "What's more, our work here is a fulfillment of an important part of our mission statement -- that everything we do leads to a cleaner, healthier and safer environment. Not only does our technology reduce emissions, but we are also building this new facility with the kind of green technologies that will reduce our impact on the local environment."
Cummins acquired the SCR dosing business from Hilite International in July 2012, positioning the Company to meet the growing needs of customers as an increasing number of regions adopt tougher emissions standards. The new facility, on land near the current site, will provide room for the business to grow. Construction is expected to begin later this summer with completion in early 2014.
