Cummins History

Columbus main plant (1973)
The Cummins Engine Company was founded in Columbus, Indiana, on February 3, 1919, by J Irwin Miller, William G. Irwin, and Clessie Cummins, a local mechanic. It focused on developing the diesel engine invented 20 years earlier, but despite several well-publicized endurance trials, it was not until 1933 that their Model H, used in small railroad switchers, proved successful.
The Cummins N Series engines became the industry leader in the post-World War II road building boom in the United States, with more than half the heavy-duty truck market using a Cummins engine from 1952 to 1959.
In the 1960s, the company opened an assembly plant in Shotts, Scotland (closed in 1996).
By 2013, Cummins had operations in 197 countries and territories

Cummins Power Systems Business (formerly Cummins Power Generation)



A Cummins Power Solutions unit at the Shenandoah National Park office outside of Luray, Virginia.
Cummins Power Systems Business Unit consists of Alternators, Automatic Transfer Switches, Commercial Power Systems, Consumer Systems, Engines, and Paralleling Systems.
Cummins Power Systems is a global provider of power generation systems, components and services in standby power, distributed power generation, as well as auxiliary power in mobile applications.

All of the above stem from Cummins Onan, of which products are still in service today.

This Business Unit was formed recently, following a merge of the Power Generation Unit and High Horsepower Sub-Division.

Cummins Power Systems


In 1986 Cummins began the acquisition of Onan and completed it in 1992. Since then, Onan has evolved into Cummins Power Generation (now Cummins Power Systems), a wholly invested division of Cummins. The Onan name continues to be used for modern versions of their traditional engine-driven generators for RV, marine, commercial mobility, home standby, and portable use.

Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) announced that it will be unifying its brand strategy across its Power Systems business segment, which provides high-speed engines from 760 4400 HP and power generation equipment from 23,500 kW, including standby and prime power gen sets, alternators, switchgear and other components.
Currently, the portfolio features the Cummins, Cummins Power Generation and Cummins Onan brands. With immediate effect, the branding will be consolidated under the Cummins brand. The Cummins Power Generation and Cummins Onan brands will be retired and the Onan name synonymous with mobile gensets, will be repositioned as a generator product line under the newly unified Cummins brand in the RV market.

Cummins Inc. will also be permanently changing all 'Fun Roads' branding to Cummins RV moving forward as well and the Fun Roads brand will also be retired. As Onan will now be repositioned as an RV product line, with the new rv.cummins.com website and social media platforms serving as tools for RVers across the country to find relevant information like product specs and our sales and service locator.

'Looking to unify Cummins into one cohesive, unified brand, we decided that consolidating both products (engines and generators) into the Cummins RV family only strengthens the brand and more uniformly speaks to our manufacturers and consumers,' said Jodie Wilson.
'The brand changing will not affect product or service offerings, but will help us to continue on our promise of delivering dependability across the globe.'
