Monday, August 27, 2001
Cummins Inc. and CitiCapital have reached an agreement to promote a co-sponsored marine finance program. Under the agreement customers who purchase Cummins engines for various commercial vessels will receive exclusive finance products provided by CitiCapital. This agreement demonstrates the cooperative efforts of both companies by bringing together the premier manufacturer of marine engines and the world's largest financial services conglomerate. The agreement will initially cover the U.S. and Canada with expectations to rollout worldwide "Financing solutions are critical with any marine projects, whether it's a new vessel or a major repower. Cummins Marine customers deserve the very best in products and services. We are very pleased to now offer CitiCapital's considerable strength and marine experience to Cummins Marine customers," said Dennis Spriggs, Financing Marketing Manager for Cummins, Inc.

CitiCapital will provide dedicated marketing and sales support to Cummins Marine distributors located in the United States and Canada.
