(COLUMBUS) - Cummins Inc. is restructuring its engine business, consolidating and streamlining some functions into its global organization.

As the company heads toward its 100th birthday in 2019, Cummins leaders are working to streamline the business, reduce costs and position the Columbus-based company to emerge stronger when international markets recover, spokesman Jon Mills said.

The restructuring, according to Mills, includes:

Moving manufacturing of parts from the engine business to the global corporate supply chain, as well as moving manufacturing engineering and a few other segments there. Mills said this brings the parts area into line with the global area of the company to better serve customers.

Centralizing customer support and product connectivity into one function, so the two will be connected throughout the entire company rather than be in separate business segments. These two areas will be centralized under a global organization. Customer support and telematics within the engine business will largely transition into the new Connected Solutions business led by Tony Satterthwaite.

Centralizing certain aspects of marketing companywide, resulting in more consistency and leverage and align how the company thinks about and executes corporate communications, marketing communications and brand management across the enterprise.
