Cummins-Wagner is a 100% employee-owned company. We have the best products and the best people in the business, and we look forward to serving you.
Founded in 1960 by “Charlie” Cummins and “Chub” Wagner, Cummins-Wagner began as a one-product, two employee company in a one-room office.
Without a well recognized major brand product line, their commitment to customer service was the company’s sole strength. This commitment to customer service, allowed the company to grow and attract major product lines. Recognizing that the ownership had bred the dedication that resulted in the success of their customer-driven business, they established an ESOP and sold the company to the employees in 1985.
Today, the company’s strength comes from both the superb product lines that are distributed and the total dedication of its nearly 200 Employee Owners to the principle of customer satisfaction.
