Cummins Rocky Mount Engine Plant has celebrated the milestone of building its 4 millionth engine earlier this month.
The engine plant has experienced significant growth for more than 30 years. Cummins Rocky Mount Engine Plant Manager John Judd says this is a remarkable feat for the employees.
“This is an incredible achievement for the many men and women who have helped make Rocky Mount a successful plant, a great place to work and one of Cummins’ premier manufacturing facilities,” Judd says, according to a story by the Rocky Mount Telegram. "I am glad that the teams throughout the plant took this opportunity to reflect on this moment and celebrate what we have accomplished together, which is tremendous teamwork, performance and execution. I am also humbled and thrilled that many employees who built the first engine are still contributing to our success and had a chance to help build our 4 millionth engine. Many things have changed, but the pride we take in our work remains. This milestone exemplifies a bright future for Rocky Mount Engine Plant, our employees and our community.”
