Cummins Inc.’s new nine-story structure in downtown Indianapolis is more than just an office building, the engine maker says — it’s also a recruitment tool.

The Indianapolis Business Journal (IBJ) reported that company officials, city leaders and others gathered today (Jan. 5) for a formal ribbon-cutting at the facility, which sits on a four-acre site at 301 E. Market St. Employees start moving into the building later this month.

The facility will serve as the new headquarters for Cummins’ global distribution business — Doworkers who handle sales, service and support of Cummins products. Employees will include 90 people who currently work at other Indianapolis locations, and about 160 others who now work at Cummins’ corporate headquarters in Columbus.

Columbus has its own appeal, said Tony Satterthwaite, president of Cummins’ distribution business.

“It’s a small town. It’s a cozy environment,” Satterthwaite told IBJ.
