Cummins Emission Solutions (CES), a subsidiary of Cummins Inc., will strategically partner with EMCON Technologies LLC in manufacturing CES-Designed emission controls systems for the 2010 on-highway truck market.
CES will continue to provide the integrated DPF-SCR systems for meeting 2010 EPA emission standards from its existing manufacturing base in Wisconsin. EMCON will be the manufacturer of CES's Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF).
Plans call for EMCON to begin production of the CES DPF products in late 2009.
CES also said it will shut down its Wautoma (Wisconsin) Plant. About 180 people are employed at the Wautoma Plant, which will close its doors by the end of March. The other emission control and exhaust products manufactured in the Wautoma facility will be moved to other CES manufacturing locations in Wisconsin. CES will review opportunities to transfer some people to other Cummins locations, but these opportunities are expected to be limited due to the market conditions.
