Cummins has announced the delivery of its 300,000th engine to Hyundai Construction Equipment (HCE).
Executives from both companies met in Columbus, Indiana, to celebrate the momentous occasion. Cummins and HCE have been business partners for over 30 years, and this marked another milestone for both companies.
American off-highway machine engine giant Cummins has been supplying engines to HCE since 1990, hitting 10,000 units supplied in 1996 and 200,000 in 2016. Earlier this year, Hyundai Construction Equipment received the 1.5 millionth Mid-Range engine from Cummins Darlington, UK plant.
“Cummins is happy to provide Hyundai Construction Equipment with the 300,000th engine and to have been working with them for over 30 years,” said Eric Neal, Cummins Executive Director for Off-Highway. “We look forward to continuing to work with Hyundai and hope to celebrate more milestones in the future.”
Hyundai Construction Equipment was formed in 1985 and manufactures a range of industrial machines, including excavators, wheel loaders, and forklift trucks. With a head office in Seoul, South Korea, it has operational centres in the United States, Europe, India, Brazil, and China.
