Columbus, Ind. (September 18, 2008) - Cummins Inc. (NYSE:CMI) announced today that it has been selected as the engine of choice for Wegmans Food Markets, Inc. The order of 101 Cummins ISX-powered trucks signifies the importance of industry-leading fuel economy for Wegmans. When Wegmans began to consider options for replacement trucks in their fleet, a number of factors made the list – including fuel economy, durability and reliability – making it a natural fit for Cummins power. Cummins ISX engines with proven cooled-EGR technology, VG Turbo and Cummins aftertreatment run more efficiently while significantly reducing emissions. “Cummins is delighted to have been selected as the engine of choice by Wegmans.” said Jeff Jones, Cummins Vice President of Sales and Market Communications. “We are confident that our ISX engines will provide Wegmans with the industry-leading fuel economy our customers have come to expect, while contributing to a cleaner environment.” The Cummins ISX 15L engines are produced at the Jamestown Engine Plant in Lakewood, N.Y. The plant employs more than 1,300 and is the largest private employer in the Jamestown, N.Y., area. The 101 Cummins 15L ISX 500-horsepower engines will be delivered to Wegmans by the fall of this year and will comprise nearly 60 percent of their fleet. Wegmans intends to replace the remainder of the older trucks in their fleet by 2010.
