Cummins Rocky Mountain has announced plans to build a new diesel engine remanufacturing plant in Commerce City, Colorado creating 70 new jobs for the area.
The new facility will remanufacture and distribute a full line of Cummins High Horsepower diesel engines. Construction is anticipated to begin this month.
The company will receive about $459,000 in various incentives from the city, including sales and use tax exemptions and construction permit fee waivers, said Brittany Morris, economic development director for Commerce City. The state of Colorado also contributed $300,000 in incentives spread out over five years under the state’s Colorado First and Existing Industry job training program, and $384,711 conditionally approved from the Job Growth Incentive program.
Matt Cheroutes, spokesman for the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade said the state incentives are performance based and are paid only when the new jobs are actually created. Adams County is matching a portion of the Commerce City incentives, Morris said.
Located just east of 104th Avenue and Havana Street, the site will be the home of a $13.3 million, 78,000 square-foot facility that will be the largest Cummins High Horsepower diesel engine remanufacturing plant in North America. The company is calling it the Cummins Rocky Mountain Master Rebuild Center.
“This new facility will enable us to improve on our already industry leading customer support capabilities for our existing and future High Horsepower customer base,” states Bill Wolpert, Cummins Rocky Mountain’s president and CEO.
Commerce City recently adopted a new Economic Development Strategic Plan and identified industries to target its economic development activities. Brittany Morris, economic development director for Commerce City, said the Cummins Rocky Mountain plan fits within the “advanced manufacturing” target identified in the plan.
Eventually, the new facility could employ up to 140 people, according to the city.
