SEYMOUR – Manufacturing company Cummins will invest more than $25 million at its Seymour Engine Plant, creating and retaining more than 150 jobs over the next 5-10.
The company plans on upgrading existing plant infrastructure at SEP, bring in new manufacturing capabilities, including assembly, machining and block lines as well as testing equipment.
A new engine platform will be launched in 2024.
The Indiana Economic Development Corporation offered Cummins Inc. up to $550,000 in conditional tax credits and up to $100,000 in training grants based on the company’s plans to create up to 87 new jobs by the end of 2028. These tax credits are performance-based, meaning the company is eligible to claim incentives once Hoosiers are hired.
“After our significant investments into our manufacturing and tech center infrastructure over the last 10 years, our latest expansion decision will once again expand our ability to serve global markets and bring new products and technology from our high horsepower engine hub in Seymour,” said Norbert Nusterer, President, Power Systems Business Segment, Cummins Inc. “The evolving partnerships with our terrific workforce as well as the city help us build a more successful company, while in turn allowing us to contribute to stronger and more vibrant communities in and around Seymour. We are grateful to all stakeholders for the solid effort of past years on which this latest decision is built.”
