The three buildings on the Rumst campus combine all of the parts and warehouse activities for Cummins’ Engine, Power Generation and Filtration business units for the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region.
The site will also serve as the headquarters for Cummins Filtration EMEA and as the administrative headquarters for the EMEA Global Logistics business.
“Cummins has, for many years, maintained distribution operations within Belgium. We recently merged the aftermarket activities for all our business units into a consolidated group we call Cummins Global Logistics. Our Rumst workforce, with its cultural and language diversity and the ability to make excellent use of Belgium’s well developed communication and transportation networks, serves an enormously diverse region,” said Norbert Nusterer, Cummins vice president of New and ReCon Parts.
Cummins’ former distribution centre in Mechelen was consolidated into the Rumst campus, which includes one office building and two warehouses. The operation currently employs about 350 people.
