Jamestown is one of Cummins 28 worldwide manufacturing locations and produces many of the Cummins heavy-duty engines, including the ISX15, the ISX12 and the ISM diesel engines. The flagship ISX15 engine continues to be the top-selling engine in the heavy-duty truck market with Jamestown total production exceeding 677,000 ISX15 engines since 2003.

The plant is also in full production with the new high-performance Cummins Westport ISX12 G heavy-duty natural gas engine.
