As a 100% employee-owned distribution company, everyone at Cummins-Wagner Co., Inc. is personally invested to ensure your equipment reaches its full potential. We view ourselves as an extension of your team, offering engineered solutions, industry-leading brands, and comprehensive aftermarket services.
Our commitment to you is twofold:
Dedication to solutions – We will find the best solution for your application needs
Dedication to service – We will work with you after the initial sale to install, maintain, and repair any of the products we carry as well as some we don’t.
At Cummins-Wagner, our mission is to provide efficient and effective solutions to mechanical equipment applications by supplying quality products & services to the benefit of our customers, vendors and employees.
We strive to be the leading Manufacturer’s Distributor/Representative Company for sales & service of mechanical equipment in all the markets and trading areas we serve.
Founded in 1960 by “Charlie” Cummins and “Chub” Wagner, Cummins-Wagner serves Maryland, Virginia, Washington DC, Delaware, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania with leading brands of compressors, pumps, and heat transfer equipment, and offers exceptional customer service and support services such as system design, assembly, and aftermarket service and repair.
In 1985, Cummins and Wagner established an ESOP and sold the company to the employees, so now the 200 employee-owners are driven to deliver the best possible products and customer service.
Cummins-Wagner acquired Siewert Equipment and Siewert Classic in 2008, expanding our reach to include markets in New York State and Florida.
In 2012, Cummins-Wagner established its Engineered Process Solutions (EPS) division in West Chester, PA, expanding on the already-growing demand for packaged systems for pressure boosting, heat transfer, fuel oil transfer, and other industrial applications.
More recent acquisitions include Siewert Equipment acquiring J.L. Moore in 2014 for the NY territory. In 2017 Cummins-Wagner acquired EESCO Pump & Valve, which expanded our service capabilities in the Baltimore, Maryland area.
Employee Stock Ownership (ESOP)
As an “ESOP” company with 100% of the common stock universally and exclusively owned by the Employee Stock Ownership Trust (ESOT), employees are motivated to work for the long-term success of the company to a degree unmatched by those of our competitors. The successful ESOP business model typically outperforms non-ESOP companies.
Our company continually invests not only in physical assets such as inventory, tools, and facilities, but also in the latest communication and computer technology for the rapid collection, analysis, and transmission of data. The rapid exchange of information is vital to our success, whether such information is for the benefit of our customers, our sales force, or our trading partners. We strive to be on the cutting edge of technology and equipment that will allow us to better serve both our upstream and downstream trading partners.
Cummins-Wagner is committed to the safety of our employees and work facilities. Our service teams follow an established set of safety procedures and receive continuous and comprehensive training such as regularly scheduled safety meetings, which include pre-job briefings, hazard recognition and accident prevention discussions.
Additionally, Cummins-Wagner has partnered with American Compliance Systems (ACS) to strengthen the company’s commitment to safety in all of our units. Assessment of all the facilities and safety procedures are periodically cataloged by an independent party and procedure adjustments and trainings are formulated as part of ongoing continuous improvement.
In the Community
Cummins-Wagner Co., Inc. is committed to supporting organizations that improve the quality of life and address the needs of the communities represented by our employee-owners, customers, and vendors. Additionally, we are committed to supporting our employee-owners in their efforts to be well-rounded, socially responsible and caring individuals, who make a difference in their communities and the world around them.
Each year, Cummins-Wagner picks several charity organizations to donate to. Cummins-Wagner is proud to have supported four outstanding charitable organizations during 2021’s season of giving.
In December, Cummins-Wagner gifted $2,500 to the Fisher House Foundation, a non-profit organization that builds and operates “comfort” homes where military and veteran families stay free of charge while a loved one is in the hospital undergoing treatment. To date, the program has saved military and veteran families an estimated $500 million in out-of-pocket costs for lodging and transportation.
Cummins-Wagner also supported the Special Olympics Foundation by donating $2,500 to its efforts to provide people with intellectual disabilities the confidence they need to succeed, on and off the playing field. Special Olympics offers opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy, and share gifts, skills, and friendship with their families, other athletes, and the community.
A $2,500 gift was pledged to the Tunnels to Towers Foundation to support their efforts honoring the sacrifice of firefighter Stephen Siller. He tragically lost his life while saving others in the aftermath of September 11, 2001. This organization has three programs: the Smart Home Program, Fallen First Responder Program, and the Gold Star Family Program, which provides custom homes to families of fallen or disabled first responders and military members.
Earlier in 2021, our team members in New York pledged to support the United Way’s mission to provide health, education, and financial support to the many localities it serves at the $2,500 level. The United Way works tirelessly to help families needing assistance meet their basic needs, heal from trauma, and create healthy connections while preparing children within the community for success through developmental milestones and empowerment programs.
Although we can’t be everything to everybody, it’s nice to share where we are making a difference. Please contact us if you have questions about our Community Impact initiatives.
