Cummins Power Generation, a division of Cummins Inc. which produces Onan generators, will host U.S. Secretary of the Interior Gale Norton and Minnesota Senator Norm Coleman at the RV supplier’s headquarters and manufacturing facility Wednesday (Oct. 13) in Fridley, Minn., a suburb of Minneapolis.
Norton and Coleman will meet with Cummins officials, including CEO Tim Solso and Bob Sonntag, vice president, Worldwide Power Generation Operations for Cummins.
According to a press release, Norton and Coleman will tour the Cummins Power Generation production facility where Onan generators are made and see a demonstration that highlights the company’s success in cutting emissions and reducing noise in its RV generators.
During the visit, Cummins will present five Onan generators to be used to aid the hurricane recovery efforts in Florida at several federal, state and local parks and other public lands.
The cleanup effort, which will be launched Oct. 23 in conjunction with national Make a Difference Day, is part of a nationwide program called Take Pride in America.
Norton’s visit to Onan represents her second appearance at an RV-related business. In August, Norton toured Monaco Coach Corp.’s manufacturing facilities at its headquarters in Coburg, Ore.
