MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 20, 2006 -- Cummins Power Generation, a business unit of Cummins Inc., has received the "2006 North American Diesel Engine Technology Leadership of the Year Award" from Frost & Sullivan, a global growth consulting company. In granting the national award, Frost & Sullivan noted it was in recognition of "impressive advancements and market leadership in emissions technology and [Cummins Power Generation's] presence as a major environmentally minded market participant."

Each year Frost & Sullivan presents the award to a company that has demonstrated excellence in technology leadership within their industry. According to the award citation, "Cummins Power Generation has demonstrated technology leadership by excelling in all stages of the technology life cycle -- incubation, adaptation, take-up and maturity -- to ensure a continuous flow of improvements."

As the first generator set manufacturer to offer EPA-compliant Tier 2 and Tier 3 products to the power generation marketplace, Cummins Power Generation has also helped educate customers about the complex emissions regulations affecting stationary and nonroad diesel engine-driven generator sets.
