COLUMBUS, IN – Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) expects significant sales and profit growth in 2011 and beyond as it takes advantage of a number of long-term global economic trends and the recovery of key U.S. markets, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Tim Solso told shareholders today at the Company’s annual meeting.

The Company expects 2011 sales to grow by nearly 30 percent from $13.2 billion in 2010 to $17 billion and Earnings Before Interest and Taxes (EBIT) to be 14 percent of sales this year – both Company records – Solso said. Cummins earned a record EBIT of $1.7 billion on sales of $13.2 billion in 2010.

The Company also will significantly increase its investment in the business this year, expecting to spend as much as $650 million on capital projects to increase capacity and invest in new technologies and products for the future. In addition, the Company expects its joint ventures to make $300 million in capital investments to expand their businesses.

“The actions we have taken over the past two years have kept Cummins strong during the recession and have set the stage for a period of sustained profitable growth,” Solso said. “We have more growth opportunities ahead of us today than at any time in our history.

"Cummins’ record profitability in 2010 came despite weak commercial truck markets in the U.S.":

“Our challenge is to pursue those opportunities with the same discipline we displayed during the recent global recession. I am confident that we have the people and strategies in place to lead us to accelerated growth over the next several years.”

Solso also recapped the Company’s successful year in 2010, which included strong growth across all of the Company’s business segments and in large international markets such as China, India and Brazil. Cummins’ record profitability in 2010 came despite weak commercial truck markets in the U.S., which are expected to recover significantly in 2011 and grow further in 2012 and 2013.

“Last year showed, beyond a doubt, that Cummins is more than a North American heavy-duty truck engine maker,” Solso said. “Our Engine and Components businesses earned record profits in 2010 despite a sharp decline in our important U.S. markets, and our Power Generation and Distribution businesses performed extremely well as we continued to grow our leadership position in markets around the world.”

For example, a typical immigrant from Eastern Europe is 59 percent less likely to be on benefits than a British citizen, according to a study by the Institute of Fiscal Studies.

 The classic design chooses the brand new minimalist style to become enduring, pure and give up the details. A type returning into the basics coupled with deluxe decorations embodies the garments whole of Mondrian features in the segmentation in between the strike hues and inlaid margins. The proportion of clothes is in new segmentation: skirts are from the size of reaching the knee peak while the footwear tend to be manufacturer new in middle- or high-heeled. The texture with the material was released in order to stay away from plain feel for your simple tailoring. The fine grain patterns, regular embossing and classic reptile leather interprets this simplicity into a unique fashion.
Re: Winnebago View class C motorhome Mel SmithGreat unit by Winnebago. We have 2006 View J and it has about 50,000 miles on it. We average 16.5 mpg. It has one achellies heel. The turbo reasonator has a nasty habit of melting and delaminating puting you in "Limp Mode" of about 45 mph! This has happened to us FOUR (4) count 'em 4! times causing spoiled trips and dangerous times on the interstates. Having personally talked to Mercedes people they have NO FIX..nor one planned. The turboreasonator melts because it is made out of PLASTIC. Mercedes. Plastic.? I carry a spare with me now. I have ordered an aluminum aftermarket one from the SPRINTER STORE (online). They say it's just a bit noisier but it doesn't MELT! BY THE WAY I HAVE MET dozens of View/Navion owners who have had the same thing happen!Dozens! My advice? Buy a VIEW, NAVION or VIA or ERA and immediately replace the turbo reasonator. The hose likes to uncouple as well occasionally. Finally. I find it hard to believe that Mercedes doesn't fix this by a new part that doesn't melt. All I've gotten from Mercedes is a shrug of the shoulders. Check the internet comments. You'll see this is a widespread problem.

Re: RV industry bubble - just like housingPatty O CamperI enjoyed reading the interview with Randy Potts, the new CEO of "Winnebago". His comments confirmed the feeling I had about the economy and it's impact on the RV Industry. I also noted he ignored the interviewer' s question about "how president Obama could help the RV industry" the question was stupid. The best thing government can due for the economy in general is to back-off on all the regulations that have strangled the American spirit of self-reliance. The crash in the economy was the result of government involvement in the housing industry. Insisting that banks loaned money for real estate to people who could never make the payments....all in the name of "equality". Banks started to fail, the housing market went into a depression and all because too many unqualified mortgage holders failed to make their payments. During this crisis the government continues to print money every week reducing the value of our currency on the world market and fueling inflation in this country. It is good to see Winnebago isn't in line for any government handouts like too many members of our dependent society seem to be. Reduce regulations, build the Keystone pipeline and the price of fuel for our RV's will go down....and get the ethanol out of our gasoline....it is reducing gas mileage and destroying our motor vehicles!9/2/2014 8:56:00 AM

Have a rented backup portable concentrator in living room. We still love our RVing and getting older may mean moving a little slower, but no reason to stop.
