Cummins opens Seymour Technical Center
The center is close to 22 test cells for engine research and developmental work in the fields of mining, rail, oil and gas, marine, power generation and industrial applications. It will operate alongside the Seymour Engine Plant.
"With our laser-focus on meeting the needs of our customers, this technical center is a tremendous advantage in our quest to always be better, faster and first,” Cummins High-Horsepower Engine Business Vice President and General Manager Ed Pence said. “This addition enhances our Seymour site, which is now truly an industry-leading facility for engine design, testing and manufacturing with world-class credentials."
Cummins hopes the Seymour Technical Center will become the focal point of all Cummins engine development from 19- to 95-liter diesel engine platforms.
"When we designed this facility we looked at how we could create a building that embodied our values," Phil Henry, Cummins Engine business facilities director, said. "With that end in mind, we established environments with things like workstations on casters and technology-rich collaboration spaces, which promote innovation. We also created a building in which energy efficiency was a key feature."
