If Cummins-powered equipment is nearing any service event, it is time to consider the use of Cummins genuine parts or kits. A comprehensive range of kits is available to meet the repair practices and budgets of its customers. “We are able to supply a one-stop solution from service and repairs to major overhauls and rebuilds,” explains Bhavyata Gupta, Parts Product Manager for Cummins Africa Middle East, based in Dubai. “We have kitting and bundling options available that are far more cost-effective than buying the components individually.”
In addition, Cummins Genuine Kits offer customers the benefit of simplifying and speeding up their own supply chain and ordering processes. The kits are only made up using genuine Cummins parts, engineered for specific engines and backed by a warranty offered by all Cummins authorised locations in the event of failure.
“There can a minimum price difference of 10%, and as much as up to 30%, when buying these parts separately as opposed to using Cummins Genuine Kits,” highlights Gupta. The two main benefits for customers are the comprehensive selection of kits and parts available, in addition to ease of ordering.
“Our kits also ensure that customers have access to all the parts they need, and do not risk of not having a critical component on hand, which could hold up a service event or overhaul. This could have a major impact on productivity, engine performance and the customer’s bottom line,” stresses Gupta.
In addition, Cummins Sales and Service locations always have the right tools and certified technicians to carry out major repairs like overhauls. Engine overhauls are also dyno-tested to ensure the engine functions properly and continues performing at its best for the long haul. Genuine Cummins parts are built to meet or exceed the original specifications for performance, reliability, and durability of Cummins’ engines.
Cummins also has engine service plans in place to remind customers when maintenance or a repair is required. These can be accessed from any authorised Cummins distributor or dealer. In addition, Cummins is able to offer technician training for major fleet owners if required. “If any customer needs a specific part that is not bundled in any of our kits, they can always reach out to us for assistance and expertise,” concludes Gupta.
