Cummins Inc. plans major remodeling, new warehouse
LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Cummins Inc. plans a major remodeling of an office building and a new $15 million warehouse near its southern Indiana headquarters.
The engine company is asking the Columbus City Council to approve property tax breaks for the two projects.
Cummins intends to remodel the four-story former Irwin Union Bank building in downtown Columbus that the company bought in 2010. Cummins is telling city officials that it plans to update the building's mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems.
City attorney Jeff Logston says Cummins plans to move about 150 employees from other Columbus facilities to the building.
The new warehouse planned near Cummins' Walesboro factory could add about 25 jobs. The Columbus City Council could consider the tax break requests on Tuesday.
