KamAZ and Cummins first establisged a business relationship in 1987 when a US-based group of executives headed by Vice-president John Becker came to the truckmaker’s headquarters in the city of Naberezhnye Chelny. The meeting was productive, resulting in a basis for joint cooperation. In 2004, KamAZ launched a new range of 5.5 tonne medium trucks called the 4308 series, all featuring Cummins “B” Series 5.9-liter diesel engines. The success of these trucks exceeded everyone’s expectations, owing to the responsiveness and superb fuel economy of the“B” Series Cummins powerplants. Building on the successful cooperation, KamAZ and Cummins opened a 50/50 joint venture factory in 2006, ZAO Cummins Kama (КАММИНЗ-КАМА). With an annual capacity of 24,000 engines, the plant produces Euro-3, Euro-4 and Euro-5 emissions “B” Series engines ranging from 140 to 300 horsepower.

Cummins will have access to the largest truck brands sales and service network in Russia and the CIS, while KamAZ wil benefit from new technology and a new niche in the Russian engine market.
