The History of Onan - now owned by Cummins

D. W. (David) Onan knew he was on to something back in 1920 when he started Onan.  Electricity, and the equipment to generate it, was the leading technology of that time.  Besides being able to envision the future of electrical power, he also had an intense commitment to build a company that would thrive during good and bad times.   His dream was to provide well designed and manufactured products for those who needed high quality electric generating equipment.

Through his inspiration, Onan has been a leader with many product developments and industry firsts.  Here are a few historical notes that are especially significant:

As a member of the Cummins family, Onan brings together the Cummins engine technology, Newage alternator technology, and its own control and switchgear manufacturing expertise.  The result is an integrated product line and worldwide support network that is unmatched by any other power systems manufacturer.  Since Cummins has complete control of power system design and manufacture, the user gets single source responsibility that extends from project concept through the life of your power generation system.

Onan has provided power system solutions for a long time. Cummins will continue leading the way with new product development, extension of existing product lines, as well as product performance and quality improvements.
