Cummins participated in the 42nd Annual Mid-American Trucking Show in Louisville, Ky., USA. Cummins has supported MATS since its inception and is now one of the largest Heavy-Duty trucking events in the world, with more than 1,000 exhibitors and more than 80,000 industry professionals attending this year.
Cummins continued the theme, “Better. Where it Counts.” throughout the show week. Before the show opened, Cummins hosted 40 editors and writers of key trucking industry trade publications to hear Rich Freeland, President of the Engine Business Unit (EBU), and other EBU leaders. Cummins 2013 engine lineup were among some of the featured topics of discussion as well as the Cummins and Peterbilt’s “SuperTruck.”
The exhibits were open March 21-23 in the Kentucky Exposition Center. The Cummins booth was well represented by a number of our complementary businesses and teams: Engine Business Unit, Cummins Corporate Social Responsibility, Cummins Generator Technologies, Cummins Emissions Solutions, Cummins Filtration, Cummins Turbo Technologies, Cummins New and ReCon Parts and Cummins Westport. The booth was fully staffed with knowledgeable Cummins booth workers throughout the entire show.
The Cummins booth offered a tribute to the Era of Innovation by Clessie Cummins. This portion of the booth highlighted a Cummins-powered 1936 Cadillac Fleetwood Sedan that belonged to Clessie. Special guest Lyle Cummins, son of Clessie Cummins and author of The Diesel Odyssey of Clessie Cummins, attended the show on Thursday to answer attendees’ questions and share stories.
If you were at MATS this year and saw our booth, we would love to hear your feedback.
