CHARLESTON, SC — Cummins Turbo Technologies, formerly known as Holset Turbochargers, has officially opened its newest manufacturing plant in Charleston, SC. The business, a division of Columbus, IN-based Cummins Inc. is headquartered in Huddersfield, England, and is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of turbochargers for diesel engines.
The new 110,000-square-foot plant will produce turbochargers for heavy-duty engines and will complement the company’s existing manufacturing facility in Charleston.
