Cummins’ plant in Indiana hit hard by floods

| 7/7/2008

Heavy truck engine-maker Cummins took a big hit from flooding at its Columbus, IN, plant.

The Indianapolis Star reported that the plant suffered at least $100 million worth of damage as muddy flood waters flowed into basements and ground floors at the complex.

The engine plant, a technical center and an occupational health center were all damaged.

A company spokesman says insurance will cover most of the cost.
