Cummins is to open a state-of-the-art high-horsepower engine rebuild centre in Krakow, Poland, becoming the company’s first such specialist rebuild facility in Europe.
The new site is set to be fully operational at the end of this year.
This $10 million investment will enable Cummins Poland to provide strategic support for its customers throughout the region, not only in the specialised engine rebuild process but also supporting local customers throughout Poland with its considerably extended distribution and warehousing capabilities, Cummins said.
Marek Matuszewski, Country Leader for Poland, the Baltic States & Ukraine at Cummins, said: “This is a significant step in increasing Cummins’ presence in Poland and other European countries, enabling us to meet the demand for engine rebuild services across several market segments more effectively.
“Once the rigorous engine rebuild process is complete, a product can be considered ‘as new’, delivering performance that is the same or better than the original engine, so the investment is sure to prove beneficial for our current and future partners. This is also a strategic move for Cummins globally in that it significantly expands the range of services in the region while expanding storage and distribution capacity, including a six-fold increase in warehouse space.”
