VANCOUVER, B.C. — Cummins is combining its Western Canadian engine distribution network to form the country’s largest engine distributor Cummins Western Canada.

Winnipeg-based Cummins Mid-Canada, Edmonton-based Cummins Alberta and Vancouver-based Cummins B.C. will be combined under one umbrella known as Cummins Western Canada.

The new entity will be responsible for the Cummins heavy-duty engine and power generation business across Western Canada and will be comprised of more than 400 employees and 14 branch locations.

The consolidation is expected to be completed at the end of March.

Guff Muench, president and owner of Cummins B.C., will be the president and principal owner of the new entity.

"Both Cummins Mid-Canada and Cummins Alberta have been very successful Cummins distributorships and I am pleased and honored to be given the opportunity to continue their tradition of excellence, to lead the new enterprise and to work with the many great Cummins people in Western Canada," says Muench. "Cummins Western Canada will focus on providing outstanding customer support for all Cummins customers in all our major markets, including mining, trucking, power generation, forestry, agriculture, marine, oil and gas."
