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.”

His indigenous soldiers seem extremely calm and relaxed to me, but then one, who is from an Aboriginal community located a long way from the coastal regions, asks to be excused and is violently sea sick for the rest of the journey. ‘He is simply not used to riding in boats’ is the explanation from a fellow soldier, who can’t help but laugh at his mates&#8217; discomfort. ‘Dusty’ continues his briefing, and explains that the patrol’s orders are to look for signs of any illegal or unusual activity, which usually involves illegal fishing boats, in the area encompassing what are called The English Company’s Islands (named by Flinders after the East India Company). They will be part of Operation ‘RESOLUTE’, the Australian Defense Force’s contribution to the government effort to protect Australia’s borders and offshore maritime interests.

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 is reducing gas mileage and destroying our motor vehicles!9/2/2014 8:56:00 AM
