Federal-Mogul Corp. has been selected to supply gaskets and dynamic seals for the Cummins diesel engine that will be available on 2003 Dodge 2500/3500 series pickup trucks. The sourcing decision by Cummins is expected to generate approximately $20 million over three years for Federal-Mogul, starting in 2002.
"We are honored that Cummins has chosen us for this high-profile, high-performance engine," said Tom Conaghan, senior vp, sealing systems and systems protection for Federal-Mogul. "We are bringing the latest sealing advancements to this engine, from our highly regarded plants in both the United States and Europe."
Federal-Mogul will manufacture a large number of the sealing products at its Skokie, IL, facility starting in mid-2002. The company will produce additional sealing products for the Cummins engine at various manufacturing facilities.
