|Cummins Response to Class Action Lawsuit Filed Against Fiat Chrysler and Cummins Inc. on November 14, 2016|
Official Cummins Inc. statement:
Yesterday, a class action lawsuit was filed against Cummins (CMI) and Fiat Chrysler (FCA) alleging, among other things, that we violated various emissions standards and regulations. This lawsuit has no merit and contains false and exaggerated claims. Cummins will combat these claims vigorously. Cummins is deeply disappointed in this effort to tarnish our image and standing as a company. Cummins and Chrysler/FCA have been strong partners for more than 30 years, and we are committed to providing high quality products and service for our customers.
Cummins has robust certification and compliance processes, adhering to all emissions regulations worldwide, and we prohibit the use of defeat devices in all of our products. We are transparent with all governing bodies in these processes, from disclosure of the design and operation of the emission control system, to test processes and results and later to any necessary reporting and corrective action processes if required.
Cummins works collaboratively and proactively with emission regulators globally to ensure emission standards are clear, appropriately stringent and enforceable, in an effort to ensure our products deliver on our commitments to our customers and the environment in real world use every day.
