Cummins Inc.’s chairman and CEO Tom Linebarger said the company is excited about future opportunities for success, including joint ventures and technological innovation.
That was the message to shareholders, company employees and guests Tuesday during Cummins’ annual meeting at Columbus Engine Plant, according to a story by The Republic.
Despite weakness in the North American truck and the global high horsepower markets in particular, Cummins recorded full-year revenues of $17.5 billion and earnings before interest and taxes of $2 billion. Although both figures were down from the previous year, Linebarger said the restructuring of businesses, reductions in material costs and the hard work of employees still made the company profitable and beneficial to shareholders.
