Council leaders found out about pioneering, green technology being developed at Cummins Engine Plant during a recent visit.

Heather Scott, Leader of the council, and Jonathan Dulston, Deputy Leader, were joined by Ben Houchen, Tees Valley Mayor and senior officials from Cummins during the visit to the business’s Darlington headquarters.

One of the town’s major employers for many years, a tour of the plant also gave an opportunity to meet with young apprentices who are working on some exciting new developments as well as the ongoing work at the centre to reinvent the internal combustion engine to run on zero carbon hydrogen.

Cllr Scott said: “It was a very productive meeting with one of the town’s most established and successful businesses who have year on year contributed and supported a wide range of community and voluntary activities. We are delighted to have Cummins in Darlington.

“Their pioneering work on alternative energy sources will have a tremendous impact for years to come and it was fascinating to explore the wider opportunities that Cummins see as part of a bright and greener future. ”
