Since entering the 21st century, the rapid development of China's construction machinery has attracted the attention of the world. The construction machinery market has been activated by huge investment in capital construction, radiating huge energy, making China the world's largest construction machinery manufacturing plant and application market.
  
As the upstream supply chain of the construction machinery industry, the spare parts industry has become closely related to the host manufacturers, and the high-end key spare parts have become the bottleneck restricting the strength of China's construction machinery industry. In view of this, the 12th Five Year Plan of China's construction machinery has taken the development of domestic key spare parts as an important work content.
  
With the continuous expansion of China's construction machinery mainframe market, the accessories market is increasingly favored by foreign brands, especially the profits of blank products for the Chinese market. These foreign brands are no longer satisfied with the general nature of commodity export trade, nor are they satisfied with the product license production model, but more and more favor localized production and sales, because they not only meet the needs of local Chinese hosts, but also meet the needs of international strategic partners entering the Chinese market, so they will extend long or short investment tentacles......
  
power system
  
Due to the large loads and power consumption of construction machinery during self-movement and construction operations, diesel engines are generally used as power engines, which are known as the "heart" of construction machinery. Domestic engines occupy the low-end power configuration. High-end power configuration is the first choice or must choose foreign brands.
  
United States Cummins (CUMMINS)
  
Founded in 1919, Cummins engine company in the United States, today, the products have been sold in more than 190 countries and regions around the world. Its business ties with China can be traced back to the 1940 s. It should be said that until today, among foreign diesel engine brands, Cummins has been very successful in expanding the Chinese market.
  
Cummins' initial investment project in China was aimed at supporting the heavy truck field, and later involved in the field of off-highway engineering vehicles, and waited for the opportunity to realize the transformation from license system production to joint venture construction in the cooperation mode.
  
In January 1981, as one of the key introduction projects in the engine field of the "Sixth Five-Year Plan" of the national economy, China National Heavy Duty Truck Group and Cummins formally signed a technology introduction agreement to produce Cummins 10~50 liters of high-horsepower diesel engines at the Chongqing Automobile Engine Plant under China National Heavy Duty Truck, filling a gap in the domestic high-performance high-horsepower diesel engine field, and Cummins has also become one of the first foreign-funded enterprises to conduct localized production in China. In 1995, Chongqing Engine Factory officially became a peer-to-peer joint venture between China and foreign countries-Chongqing Cummins Engine Co., Ltd.
  
In 1985, the Second Automobile Group established the "Second Automobile Manufacturing Plant Diesel Engine Plant Preparation Group" to start the comprehensive preparation of the Cummins diesel engine plant. In November 1986, Erqi and Cummins signed a contract for the transfer of B- series diesel engine products and manufacturing technology licenses in the Great Hall of the People. In 1996, the two parties established Dongfeng Cummins Engine Co., Ltd. as a joint venture in equal proportion to produce Cummins C series 8.3-liter diesel engines.
  
In October 2006, Cummins and BAIC Foton Motor Co., Ltd. jointly established a joint venture-Beijing Foton Cummins Engine Co., Ltd. in an equal proportion to produce Cummins new generation 2.8-liter and 3.8-liter inline four-cylinder high-pressure direct-injection light diesel engines. The emissions can meet European No. 3, No. 4 and above standards. The products will be widely used in light trucks, pickups, SUVs, MPV utility vehicles and small off-highway equipment. In August of the following year, Xi'an Cummins Engine Company, a peer-to-peer joint venture between Cummins and Shaanxi Automobile Group, was formally established and put into production Cummins ISM 11-litre fully electronically controlled heavy-duty diesel engine.
  
With the improvement of the layout of the engine manufacturing base, Cummins has gradually established a supply base for engine parts in China, and has established joint venture and wholly-owned factories in Jiangsu, Hubei, Beijing, Shanghai and other places.
