"It's exciting that employees of these two companies are coming under a single company to represent California and Hawaii. Our states are a focal point for clean-air initiatives and green energy. Our new company will allow us even greater focus on the application of Cummins products to this expanding market," said Yragui. "Building on the high standards already achieved by Cummins West and Cummins Cal Pacific to date will make this mission all the more achievable."

Cummins Pacific's management team will draw upon experience from both companies' leaders, combining best practices found at each of the companies in order to optimize business practices and systems for the new organization.
