Cummins Inc. is synonymous with diesel.
The Columbus-based company says its engines power seven out of 10 trucks on the road in the U.S. They are in most school buses, city buses and RVs across the country. They keep construction and mining equipment running. Not to mention, Cummins provides backup power for landmarks such as Wrigley Field and the Statue of Liberty.
"The reality is Cummins products are all around us," said Jennifer Rumsey, the Fortune 500 company's chief technical officer. "We didn't invent the diesel engine, but we are the one that took the technology and disrupted gasoline engines."
That was just the first of many ground-breaking and industry-leading moves by the Indiana company, which turns 100 this year.
