Linebarger: Cummins Looks for Strong Growth

Posted By RVBusiness On May 8, 2012 @ 3:59 pm In Breaking News | No Comments

Engine builder Cummins Inc. is in a strong position to continue expanding in global markets and meet its long-term growth targets, Cummins Chairman and CEO Tom Linebarger told shareholders at the company’s annual meeting today.

According to a press release, Linebarger highlighted Cummins’ 2011 results, including record financial performance with sales up 36% from 2010 to more than $18 billion, and earnings before interest and tax (EBIT) up 54% to $2.56 billion. Cummins’ outstanding 2011 performance and the strong start to 2012 positions the Company to achieve its goal of $30 billion in sales in 2015, he said.

“Our technology leadership in markets around the world enables Cummins to capitalize on the macro trends that are shaping the global economy — stringent emission standards, rising energy prices, globalization and infrastructure growth,” Linebarger said.

The company’s profits have tripled over the past decade as investments in growth, new products and leading-edge technology have paid off, he said. Cummins’ strategy to focus on five growth accelerators makes it possible to meet the challenges of the changing global economy — adopt a growth mindset, develop from a multinational to a global company, achieve supply chain excellence, deliver Customer Support Excellence (CSE), and invest in leadership development.

“I’m proud to report a strong year in 2011 with record financial performance and I believe our future is even brighter as we capitalize on our current strengths and future opportunities,” said Linebarger said. “However, I am even more proud of the hard work and commitment of the 44,000 Cummins employees who come to work each day not only making a difference here, but having a positive impact on the community as well.”
