COLUMBUS, Ind. (AP) -- Diesel engine maker Cummins Inc. has announced that it will add 600 employees in the next few years to work in an $18 million office building it plans for its central Indiana headquarters.
The company announced the expansion Friday at a news conference in Columbus attended by Gov. Mitch Daniels and other officials.
Daniels praised the company for its commitment to Indiana.
The project is the third expansion in the area announced by Cummins in the past year and will give it nearly 3,000 workers in Columbus.
Cummins reported its most profitable year ever in 2010, largely on the strength of significant growth in international markets including China, India and Brazil.
Cummins says more than 60 percent of its sales are generated outside of the United States.
