Who are Cummins?
Cummins are an American company supplying Diesel engines and parts for power generation, automotive and heavy equipment purposes. They are a multinational provider of essential components for Diesel generators of all shapes and sizes. Cummins are mainly known for their Diesel engine parts.
The Diesel engine parts you can expect to find in a power solution are likely to come from Cummins Power Systems, formerly known as Onan. However, suppose you’re interested in a Cummins Diesel generator turbocharger, this will typically be brought to you by Cummins Turbo Technologies. This company, bought by Cummins in 1973, was known initially as Holset Engineering Co. Holset was a British company well known for its Diesel turbochargers in the 20th century. Their brand name can still be seen on their turbochargers to this day!
What is the History of Cummins?
As you have just seen, the history of Cummins doesn’t just end at the primary Cummins company. The Cummins range of products as we know it today is a collection of some quality Diesel manufacturing brands of old, combined under the unified direction of the Cummins Brand.
Clessie Cummins founded Cummins Inc. itself on February 3rd, 1919. The Local mechanic from Columbus, Indiana, teamed up with banker J Irwin Miller to develop the Diesel engine. The Diesel engine at this time was only twenty years old. Despite this early adoption, it wasn’t until the Model H in 1933 that Cummins found widespread success.

World War II was particularly profitable for Cummins. Their N-series were used in the heavy-duty trucks that drove forward the American road-building boom. This success continued throughout the 60s and beyond, with acquisitions and expansion leading Cummins to now have operations in nearly 200 countries.
