(NYSE: CMI) announced today the launch of Cummins Care, an enhanced customer assistance program providing 24/7 response. The new program is the latest addition to the operation located at the new Cummins Customer Support Center in Nashville, Tenn.
Cummins employs 110 specialists at the 25,000-square-foot facility who are trained in providing the highest level of professional service to all Cummins customers.

Cummins Care complements the relationship between customers and their local Cummins distributors, as well as vehicle and equipment dealers.

Understanding and identifying this scheduling availability of the location increases customer uptime and satisfaction," continued Schacht.
As part of the total value that Cummins offers customers, coupled with its strong commitment to customer support, Cummins Care provides a trusted information source for questions regarding the latest on- and off-highway engine and product technology, including EPA 2010 and Tier 4 Interim with new ultra-clean aftertreatment systems. The Nashville-based team is also prepared to answer all operational questions on topics such as fuel and oil specifications and maintenance intervals.
Cummins Care utilizes the same 1-800-DIESELS™ number that customers know today. The enhanced support hours will be extended to 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, starting in July 2011.
