The Cummins

Engine Company was founded in Columbus, Indiana, in 1919 by Clessie Cummins, a local mechanic. It focused on developing the diesel engine invented 20 years earlier, but in spite of several well publicized endurance trials it was not until 1933 that their Model H, used in small railroad switchers, proved successful.[4][5][6] In the post-World War II U.S. road building boom Cummins
