Cummins to Set up its Biggest Technology Centre @ Pune

American diesel engine specialist Cummins is setting up the group's biggest technology centre in Pune at a cost of Rs.1,500 crore. The proposed Cummins Technical Centre in India will come up on a 16-acre campus at Kothrud on the outskirts of  Pune. It will develop electric and hybrid vehicle solutions, including affordable emission technologies, with the help of 2,500 engineers, according to Sandeep Sinha, chief operating officer of Cummins Group India. The expenditure on the proposed centre will be spread over three to five years.

Apart from delivering affordable emission solutions for the local market, the centre will also spearhead the company's global effort to improve emission technology, including for vehicles and hybrid solutions. The centre will work on exploring and providing technology insights that will offer a critical competitive advantage in engine, component and generator technology for its global operations.
