Cummins Completes Acquisition Of Siemens’ Commercial Vehicles Business

Cummins Acquires Siemens’ Commercial Vehicles Business

Transaction will accelerate Cummins’ development of electrified power solutions.

Cummins Inc. has announced that it, through its subsidiary Meritor, has completed its acquisition of Siemens’ Commercial Vehicles business. In May 2022, Meritor Inc. announced it had entered into an agreement to acquire the business for approximately €190 million enterprise value; Cummins subsequently completed its acquisition of Meritor in August 2022.

This acquisition adds key capabilities in direct drive and transmission-based remote mount electric motors, inverters, software and related services which are critical elements in the next generation of electric powertrains. These capabilities, and their addition of nearly 200 employees primarily in Germany, China and the United States, will accelerate Cummins ability to offer global customers a wider array of electrified product solutions across commercial vehicle applications.

“We are excited to welcome Siemens’ Commercial Vehicles electric drive systems business into Cummins,” said Jennifer Rumsey, Cummins’ president and chief executive officer. “By combining our collective, deep knowledge of our industry and how our customers use our applications, we will innovate and advance key technologies. This acquisition also reflects another key milestone in the execution of our strategy to reach net-zero emissions by 2050 in a way that is best for our customers and the planet.”

“We are thrilled to join Cummins which has a long history serving the commercial vehicle market,” said Mart Verschoor, former CEO of Siemens Commercial Vehicles who will assume the role as vice president – traction systems within Cummins’ New Power segment. “I know we will deliver technologies required to accelerate adoption of zero-emission powertrains that delight our customers and move our communities forward.”

The acquired business will report through Cummins New Power business unit.
