The Cummins Group today opened a parts distribution center (PDC) at the Megasite in Phaltan, 100 km from Pune, in Maharashtra. This is the fourth facility of Cummins in India. The company also broke ground for an industrial engine upfit centre at the Megasite, its fifth project.
The PDC will help Cummins improve its supply chain in aftermarket parts distribution, a company release said.
The proposed industrial engine upfit centre will be used for up-fitting diesel and natural gas mechanical and electronic B and L series engines. This facility will also manufacture Cunnins' C series engines.
Production of these engines, meant for the power generation, industrial and automotive sectors, is expected to commence by the middle of next year.
When completed, the facility will have a capacity to manufacture 20,000 engines annually.
The Cummins Megasite was conceived four years ago to house ongoing and future expansion of the Cummins Group in India.
