Is the Cummins Engine Produced in China Same with the Engines Made in other Countries?
As a global giant company and leading company in the diesel engine industry, Cummins and China’s history can be traced back to more than half a century ago in the 1940s. At the end of 1944, a Chongqing enterprise sent a letter to Cummins seeking to establish a business relationship to produce Cummins engines locally in China. The first Cummins China office was established in Beijing in 1979 when China opened to the outside world after the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and the United States.
Cummins has long localized engine production in China. In 1981, Chongqing Engine Plant began to produce Cummins engines under license. In 1995, Cummins first Joint-venture engine plant in China was established.
