Company news:

Corning Incorporated (NYSE:GLW) and Cummins Emission Solutions, a business unit of Cummins Inc. (NYSE:CMI), jointly announced that they have entered into a long-term agreement for the supply of Corning emissions control products. This multi-year agreement will help Cummins meet EPA 2007 regulations which take effect Jan. 1, 2007.

Corning and Cummins Emission Solutions worked jointly to integrate Corning DuraTrap® filters and Corning Celcor® substrates into an advanced aftertreatment platform optimized for a range of Cummins medium- and heavy-duty engines which will be used in EPA 2007 on-highway applications.

“We are pleased that Corning has been awarded the opportunity to serve Cummins emission control needs for the growing heavy-duty diesel market,” said Thomas R. Hinman, senior vice president and general manager of Corning Diesel Technologies. “Our agreement further strengthens our long-standing and mutually beneficial relationship. This announcement represents a significant milestone for Corning and reinforces our position as a leader in heavy-duty emissions control solutions.”

“This agreement is the culmination of years of work within Cummins Emission Solutions, including millions of miles of product testing on multiple engine families,” said Mike Cross, vice president and general manager of Cummins Emission Solutions. “Corning has actively supported this work since the research phase of the project.”

Corning continues to work with leading engine and vehicle manufacturers to strengthen its position as a leader in heavy-duty emissions control solutions as global demand for diesel aftertreatment grows. The company continues to leverage its materials and manufacturing expertise as well as its design-in and service capabilities to develop innovative technology solutions to help customers meet tightening emissions regulations.

Corning is a leading supplier of advanced cellular ceramic substrates and particulate filters to all of the world's major manufacturers of gasoline and diesel engines and vehicles. The company invented an economical, high-performance cellular ceramic substrate in the early 1970s that is now the standard for catalytic converters worldwide. In 1978, Corning developed the cellular ceramic particulate filter to remove soot from diesel emissions.

Since 2001, Corning has announced investments totaling $365 million for its diesel manufacturing facility in the Corning, N.Y. area which is designed to make the large filter and substrate products that are used in diesel engine exhaust treatment systems. The facility began production in 2004.
