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.”

2013 Lil' Guy Silver Shadow NacyJMy husband and I wanted a small camper that we could pull with our 2006 Toyota Solara Convertible, so we were naturally drawn to teardrops (we also love anything retro-styled). After on-line comparisons of different models, especially their weights and prices, we settled on the Lil' Guy. We were also happy to find a dealer only 3 hours away (so many seem to be on the east or west coasts while we live in the midwest). We went up to look at his inventory last fall (Nov. 2013) and chose the 5 X 8 Silver Shadow which did not include the installed sink or stove (we figured the simpler the better). Now that we've had our little camper out about a half dozen times, we're so glad we went this direction. It's ultra easy to set up and take down: just pull in and block the wheels. The interior holds a queen sized mattress so we don't feel cramped, plus, not only do the screened windows open to let in fresh air, there's a ceiling fan that is a welcome relief on those muggy nights. The interior also has some cupboards and a narrow shelf for storing books, glasses, etc. I get to set up the hatch as my little kitchen which includes a hot pot (for hot water and coffee), a double hot plate (for when we can't use a grill), and plenty of room for towels, food supplies and even a drawer for utensils. Best of all, in spite of wet weather, our bed stays dry. It sure beats sleeping on the ground in a tent!

Re: Northstar Escape Pod truck camperG Atsmaaaronet- You are TOTALLY wrong; not a single part is Toyota. Look under the hood- only GM engines here. Marshall- That was true with the Chevy LUV; actually it was a rebadged Isuzu. The Colorado was designed totally by GM in-house

Re: Travel companionsSandyWould like to explore New Orleans for possible relocation. Currently in Tucson. Like simple elegance and joie de vivre, no burgers, bars, etc. If you are like-minded, let's continue this conversation.
Re: Forest River Rockwood ultra lite travel trailerHerbert JonesWe just purchases this unit. Everrhing in it worked properly on our maiden voyage of 500 miles. We went to crater lake Oregon. However we had one of the new tires blow out because of a defective sidewall. We were just informed by the dealer that it will be 2-4 weeks before they will receive the relacement tire. Oh for joy the summer is slipping away.
Re: FulltimingJimmyI am a 68yr. Old man who wants to go on a 1 or 2 month rv trip out west. I have a 1994 Winnebageo Warrior which I just purchased. I am looking for a 45/70 yr old woman to join me.Sex is not a requirement however if it happens then it will be a plus for both of us. I am a very liberal person and you must be too. I am in good shape and want to enjoy our travels by being able to hike,fish boat ect. As far as finances are concerned I am not looking for anything necessarily however it would certainly need to be discussed. We would depart from Savannah georgia and go wherever out West.If you have experience RVing it would also be a plus as I have never gone on a extended trip in one. I can be reached at jmcintire@hargray.com
Re: RVing with Your PetCoryWe travel with 2 senior Goldens and a young one... It is very important that our Fur Babies stay cool, I would have not thought to leave a key with the camp host or a note... We usually don't lock the door when we leave them... And a ramp is very important to have to help get them in and out so the steep stairs don't hurt their hips.

Re: RV quality concernsWaltStill trying to get jack repaired on my 2014 Winnebago Vista 32ke. Winnebago agreed to send new one to Camping World where motor home was bought. Its ironic that "Good Sam" did a survey that customers listed service as a dissatisfaction because one of "Good Sam" owns Camping World that I have found to be terrible when it comes to service.

Re: VRV by Livin LitePhylWe have a Livin Lite 2011 VRV that we love, but this last year we started seeing a bubbling and corrosive area on the hinge area of the ramp door. I've contacted our dealer we purchased from, HW Motorhomes and sent them pictures via email 8 days ago. Today I followed up with Dan White and he said he contacted Livin Lite and they told him to go to the door mfg. Challenger Door. We anticipate a favorable outcome with replacement or repair on the damaged ramp door.
Re: Zoom travel trailershelly fBUYER BEWARE... we just had our 25bhs Aerolite totaled because the frame bent going down a hilly wavy road. I LOVE, Love, loved it the two times we used it but have learned from many in the business to stay away - especially from the frame that looks like "swiss cheese". Fellow campers: please learn from my family's mistake!

Re: Getting Your Kicks at Age 66, the RV LifeCHUCK AND LIZWe were full time RV'er for 7 years while I was still working. My job included travel so the RV was perfect. Retired now (67) but have COPD and require oxygen. Bought a house as a home base. Have the house concentrator and bottle charger in washer/dryer compartment. 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. Just make sure you got your meds and a way to get refills.5/25/2014 10:04:00 AM
Re: Getting Your Kicks at Age 66, the RV LifeJodiAfter reading this article-I am reminded of how wonderful the RVing life is. My husband and I were RVers for 7 years - We never regretted a minute that we spent travelling around and seeing the country. I agree with the writer that when you pull into an RV park - you can make instant friends if you want to. Most people are basically friendly and helpful.5/21/2014 6:30:00 PM
Re: RVing with Your PetKayI have 2 older dogs who are big (84 pounds each) and I'm new to RV'ing with them. Can someone tell me the best way to travel with older dogs? What to look for in a campsite and what ramps are best? They both have hip dysplasia. Thanks!2/17/2014 7:14:00 PM
