Electric Avenues: Cummins sees future in diversity

October 3, 2017 by John Smith

COLUMBUS, IN — If you’re one of those who’s been thinking that Cummins is a dead duck, and that’s been the tone of more than a few conversations I’ve joined over recent years, think again. Nothing could be further from the truth.
First off, the company presently maintains an 80% market share in the North American medium-duty market, more than 90% of the school and transit bus markets, and still a decent lead on the class-8 side of things with something like a 40% share through June of this year.
Dead in the water? Not exactly.
Globally, the company is very strong. In 2015 it manufactured more than a million engines in the heavy-duty, mid-range, and light-duty markets — from 50 to 650 hp — and nearly half of them were from its joint-venture partner plants around the world.
