Cummins Opens New Building in Downtown Indianapolis

Fri Jan 6, 2017

145322220422564.jpgCummins Inc.’s new nine-story structure in downtown Indianapolis is more than just an office building, the engine maker says — it’s also a recruitment tool.

Company officials, city leaders and others gathered Thursday for a formal ribbon-cutting at the facility, which sits on a four-acre site at 301 E. Market St. Employees start moving into the building later this month.

The facility will serve as the new headquarters for Cummins’ global distribution business — workers who handle sales, service and support of Cummins products. Employees will include 90 people who currently work at other Indianapolis locations and about 160 others who now work at Cummins’ corporate headquarters in Columbus.

Cummins built the facility with room to grow. It has space for up to 450 employees, although the company says it has no set timetable for when it might add to its Indianapolis workforce.
