About 51% of Cummins business comes from outside the US. They have significant operations in Brazil, US and England....International Harvester has nearly as many operations around the world.

I thought that multiple plants built ISB's... Or is it that multiple make blocks, while they're all assembled in Indiana?


They're a worldwide company...

A year ago I had to replace my head and it is made in Brazil and about 10 months ago I had to replace my cracked 53 block that was made in Brazil. Some parts are made here but the engines are assembled here in the states. Then they are shipped off to Mexico for final assembly of the truck.

parts of cummins are made all over. I pulled a FLYWHEEL yesterday and it says MADE IN CHINA real big on the back side. Made me so mad. I hate everything that is not made in america. My very own 53 block was made in mexico. Look inside the drivers door and it should say where it was made. Mine says real clearly....made in mexico...... ITS CRAP. But they still have the best engine!!!! LOVE CUMMINS TO DEATH but....china dont cut it!!!! Maybe we wouldnt have the fueling problems and all the little problems we have it we made it all in america all in one spot where they can get their sh*t strait. ya know?

The two largest market contributors for the Cummins are in Jamestown, NY and Rocky Mount, NC. The over the road truck engines and larger marine engines are made in NY, while the Cummins we are most accustomed with are made in NC. A portion of the castings are actually domestic but there are still some produced overseas (such as in Brazil).

The corporation I work for (IR) and Cummins share some best practices such as assembly and machining. I've been in both facilities and they are extremely impressive (as well as huge... like they have a car inside the plant to drive from one side to the other).

actually our fueling problems are because the IPs are made by bosch,a german company. german equipment is junk. i worked on german cars for a living and became convinced that german =junk.
