HEFEI, Dec. 28 (Xinhua) -- China's Anhui Jianghuai Automobile Co. Ltd. (JAC Motors) has established a joint venture with U.S. engine manufacturer Cummins, JAC said Friday.

The new joint venture will specialize in producing light-duty and mid-range engines and supply them to JAC Motors as well as other auto makers.

Headquartered in the U.S. state of Indiana, Cummins is a leading engine manufacturer and a Fortune 500 corporation.
