Cummins announced last week its Jamestown Engine Plant in Jamestown, N.Y., is turning 40. The facility churns out more than 400 engines a day, Cummins says, and it produced its 1.5 millionth heavy-duty engine last year.

It produced its first engine in 1979 — five years after Cummins acquired it. It was originally used to manufacture components, Cummins says.

Today, the plant produces on-highway engines, including the ISX15, which Cummins says is the top-selling heavy-duty engine in North America. The plant also produces the ISX12.
