Cummins Talking Turkey
Cummins Inc. will break ground in early 2011 on a multi-phased manufacturing site at the Aegean Free Trade Zone in Izmir, Turkey, the company said. The company plans to first build a filtration manufacturing plant and follow with a facility to produce alternators for its power generation business.
Production is expected to begin at the 92 900 m² site in early 2012 and Cummins expects to employ 800 people in Turkey within five years. Cummins Filtration will open its production facility first, followed by Cummins Generator Technologies, which produces alternators.
Cummins is investing US$70 million (€53 million) in the facility and related production equipment, with 85% of the products made in Turkey to be exported to Cummins' customers across Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Africa.
