NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Fleetguard, a wholly owned business unit of Cummins, is announcing a name change to Cummins Filtration effective immediately.
“Cummins has adopted a one company/one name approach for all its business units,” stated Pamela Carter, president of Cummins Filtration. “Reducing the number of organizational and subsidiary brands reflects a nimbler, more streamlined business that can fully leverage the strength of the Cummins brand for all its stakeholders.
The company began in 1958 as a single production line with two employees making filters exclusively for Cummins applications. Today, Cummins Filtration has locations on six continents and over 5,500 employees worldwide.
“Our primary product brand will continue to display the Fleetguard name,” explained Kamini Patel, vice-president of marketing. “We will also manufacture a line of co-branded filters specific to Cummins engine applications which will display both the Fleetguard and Cummins Filtration logo. Our sub-brands and subsidiary names of Nelson and Separation Technologies will move to Fleetguard by the end of the year.”
“It is important to stress that the new name, Cummins Filtration, does not legally affect customer relationships, confidentiality agreements or contracts, or the manner in which we conduct business,” added Patel.
