COLUMBUS, Ind. (AP) — Engine maker Cummins Inc. expects to have construction finished by the end of this year on a new $15 million warehouse and distribution center in southern Indiana.
The company plans to consolidate 80 employees from distribution sites in Seymour, Jonesville and Greenwood at the new center in an industrial park near Columbus. The Columbus-based company anticipates adding about 25 workers at the new center, for a total of some 105 jobs.
The new center is being built near the Cummins Midrange Engine Plant.
Cummins real estate manager Catina Furnish tells The Republic the center will store equipment and parts for the company’s area factories. Furnish says Cummins decided to build the logistics center after determining that would be less expensive than leasing sites throughout southern Indiana.
