The Power Hub aims to coordinate various business premises to support the company’s position as Africa’s power solutions provider.

The 15,355 sq m facility is holding a substantial US$24.79mn investment. It houses the Cummins Southern Africa Regional Headquarters, the Master Rebuild Centre (MRC), Africa Learning Centre and Gauteng Operations.

The new premises aim to ensure ease of business dealings for customers and support of the Cummins vision of exceeding customer expectations whilst improving operational efficiencies in a collaborative manner.

The company’s relocation from the Kelvin and Longmeadow offices to the Waterfall Logistics Precinct is set to position the company at the epicentre of Gauteng’s strategically located business hub.

The consolidation of the various businesses at the Power Hub provides a technologically advanced world-class suite of products and capabilities all available under one roof. The central hub, providing power solutions for customers across the Southern Africa region, brings together a host of Cummins technically advanced expertise from mining, power systems, automotive and technical training.

Additionally, the facility is expected to provide the latest technology such as a 3,500hp AVL Dyno Test Cell that will test some of Cummins largest engines to full power, a precision-driven spray booth to accommodate Cummins engines’ paint applications and an environmentally advanced water purification plant.

The Power Hub also launches new progressive build processes that substantially reduce the overall build time whilst improving quality output. The facility, being a part of the Cummins Distribution Business Unit, also focuses on sales and aftermarket servicing.

The MRC continues to be a focal point of Cummins support to the mining industry, providing rebuilt engines to ensure customers can enjoy a reliable and consistent supply of engines for uninterrupted operations.
