Cummins grows Chinese OEM aftermarket business
Most prominent Chinese OEMs, such as XCMG, have their offerings powered by Cummins engines.
Cummins’ relationship with Chinese original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) is on the rise.
This can be attributed to the engine manufacturer’s long relationship with these OEMs. It has enabled the company to grow with the Chinese manufacturers as they move into export markets, such as Africa.
“We are positioning ourselves to better service this growing business area. There is no question about it,” says managing director, Schuyla Goodson Bell. “Cummins has done well in partnering with Chinese OEMs. I believe the company was forward thinking because well over 25 years ago, it established key partnerships with various joint venture partners in China.”
In addition to relationship with these OEMs, Cummins has key partnerships with other OEMs partners, as Komatsu, Liebherr and Hitachi, who use its engines in some of their equipment such as shovels, excavators and trucks.
Equipment Africa says: As Chinese OEMs grow their export businesses, especially in Africa, Cummins, as a strategic engine supplier to them, is growing its aftermarket business to support these components, especially engine rebuilding which is gaining momentum. Equipment users understand the importance of preserving their investments by extending their equipment’s life by having engines rebuilt.
