Cummins Inc. has another national crown to crow about after The Motley Fool, a multi-media financial services company, named the Columbus-based engine maker the No. 1 company in America.
The Motley Fool, which released a Top 25 ranking of U.S. corporations, gave Cummins the No. 1 spot, praising its environmental leadership and workforce development efforts.
"It's easy to be sustainable in an industry like software or up-scale retail, when your business isn't very environmentally intensive in the first place," The Motley Fool said. "But as a manufacturer, especially an engine maker, one might expect that Cummins would have to use lots of resources and create lots of pollution in order to stay competitive. Nothing could be further from the truth."
