On March 11, 1941, US President Franklin Roosevelt signed the lease act to provide wartime assistance to 38 countries, including China. The military aid to China under the lease act includes Jiangfang patrol boats and military trucks equipped with Cummins engines. At the end of 1944, a Chongqing enterprise sent a letter to Cummins company, seeking to establish business contacts to carry out localized production of Cummins engines in China. Elvin Miller, then general manager of Cummins engine company, expressed great interest in this in his reply, hoping that Cummins could build a plant in China after the Sino Japanese war. For well-known reasons, Mr. Miller's idea can only be realized in the 1970s, 30 years later, with the gradual easing of Sino US relations. Cummins and its affiliated subsidiaries have invested more than US $1billion in China. As the largest foreign investor in China's diesel engine industry, Cummins' business ties with China began in 1975. Mr. Elvin Miller, then chairman of Cummins, visited Beijing for the first time and became one of the first American entrepreneurs to come to China to seek business cooperation. Since the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and the United States in 1979 and China's opening to the outside world, the first Cummins office in China was established in Beijing. Cummins is one of the first Western diesel engine companies to carry out localized production of engines in China. Cummins began to license the production of engines in Chongqing engine factory in 1981. In 1995, Cummins established its first Chinese joint venture engine factory. So far, Cummins has a total of 28 institutions in China, including 15 wholly-owned and joint ventures, with more than 9000 employees, producing products such as engines, generator sets, alternators, filtration systems, turbocharging systems, post-treatment and fuel oil systems. Cummins' service network in China includes 12 regional service centers, more than 30 customer support platforms and more than 2000 authorized dealers of wholly-owned and joint ventures in China. Cummins has long insisted on forming strategic alliances with large Chinese enterprises to achieve common development. As the first foreign-funded diesel engine enterprise to come to China for localized production, Cummins has established four engine joint ventures with leading Chinese commercial vehicle enterprises, including Dongfeng Motor, Shaanxi Automobile Group and BAIC Foton, and 15 of Cummins's 24 engine series have been produced locally in China. Cummins is the first foreign-funded diesel engine company to set up a research and development center in China. In August, 2006, the engine technology research and development center established by Cummins in cooperation with Dongfeng company was officially opened in Wuhan, Hubei Province. In 2013, Cummins' sales in China reached US $3.5 billion, and China has become Cummins' largest and fastest-growing overseas market in the world
