Cummins to Toast ‘Focal Point’ in Seymour
SEYMOUR – One of the signature pieces of a large-scale expansion at Columbus-based Cummins Inc.’s (NYSE: CMI) Seymour operations is set to open this afternoon. The $70 million Seymour Technical Center will be home to more than 400 workers and is part of an approximately $300 million investment in Jackson County in recent years. Cummins calls the center the “global focal point” of engine development and low-emissions technology for the High-Horsepower Engine Business.Recent additions in Seymour also include new warehouses, additional engineering and production test cells, an office building to hold thousands of employees, a cylinder block line and a new “aftertreatment component” manufacturing facility.
The attention to Seymour is not the only big project for Cummins in the state. The company broke ground in April on a $30 million distribution business headquarters in Indianapolis. That project is part of a major renaissance of the city’s recently-dubbed Market East District. The area in and around where Market Square arena once stood and includes a new transit center, multi-million dollar high rise and renovations to transform the Old City Hall into an upscale art hotel.
