Tue Aug 2, 2016

COLUMBUS, Indiana - Cummins Inc. has reported results for the second quarter of 2016 of $4.5 billion, which decreased 10 percent from the same quarter in 2015.

Lower truck production in North America and weak global demand for off-highway and power generation equipment were the most significant drivers of the decline in sales, according to the company. Currency negatively impacted revenues by approximately 1 percent compared to last year, primarily due to a stronger US dollar.
