Cummins Engine and Scania announced that they have formally signed a joint venture agreement to assemble and test a new fuel system for diesel engines developed by the two companies.

The joint venture, owned 70 percent by Cummins and 30 percent by Scania, will be named Cummins-Scania High Pressure Injection, L.L.C. The new company, located in Columbus, IN, began production January 1, 1999.
The electronically-controlled fuel system, which is already available as part of Cummins' new Signature 600 engine, uses high-pressure injection technology and was developed to meet future emissions standards worldwide.
