Cummins Planning New $15 Million Warehouse
Engine maker Cummins Inc. is making plans for a major remodeling of an office building and a new $15 million warehouse near its southern Indiana headquarters.
The Republic reported that the company is asking the Columbus City Council to approve property tax breaks for the two projects.
Cummins proposes remodeling the four-story former Irwin Union Bank building in downtown Columbus that the company bought in 2010. Cummins is telling city officials that it plans to update the building’s mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems.
City attorney Jeff Logston says Cummins plans to move about 150 employees from other Columbus facilities to the building.
The new warehouse planned near Cummins’ Walesboro factory could add about 25 jobs.
The Columbus City Council could consider the tax break requests this week.
