Cummins To Expand South Carolina Turbocharger Plant

Diesel engine maker says its Cummins Turbo Technologies unit will expand its Charleston facility, adding 100 new jobs to the area.

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) -- Diesel engine maker Cummins Incorporated says its Cummins Turbo Technologies unit will expand its Charleston County facility, adding 100 new jobs to the area.

A release by the state Department of Commerce Tuesday says the $11 million investment includes the addition of assembly and machining capacity. The company opened the 110,000 plant in July 2006.

Cummins Turbo Technologies president Jim Lyons says the expansion is a reflection of the company's hard work. He says it's part of a continued effort to invest people and equipment in Charleston County facility.

The plant already produces turbochargers for heavy-duty engines. Cummins Turbo Technologies has seven manufacturing locations worldwide.
