BUSTI, NY (WNY News Now) – One of the largest manufacturers in Chautauqua County plans to invest $452 million dollars to upgrade its Jamestown area facility.

Cummins Inc. eyes renovations to their Jamestown Engine Plant in the Town of Busti, bringing in new machinery and equipment that will allow it to manufacture the modern and cleaner engines.

Following the investment, the Columbus Indiana based company would produce new engine block platforms that can handle diesel, hydrogen or both.

In addition to retaining the current 1,280 employee workforce, an additional 90 more production jobs would be added over the next three years.

A Cummins spokesperson says the investment is part of the company’s zero-emissions strategy announced earlier this month.

In addition to the private investment, the company is “still in negotiations with stakeholders” and is seeking “potential grants and incentives” from the Chautauqua County Industrial Development Agency.
