In late 2016, Kohler announced a significant expansion and strengthening of its distribution network for the company’s Kohler Direct Injection (KDI) diesel engines by partnering with five highly experienced sales organizations. In conjunction with CONEXPO 2017, Kohler is highlighting three new partnerships, which bring an all-new level of value-add packaging capabilities and other benefits to leading diesel equipment manufacturers. The three new partners in the Kohler KDI distribution network will work together to cover the western United States. The newest companies to jump on board the Kohler network include: Power Equipment Systems, Salem, Ore.; Loftin Equipment, Phoenix, Ariz.; and HG Makelim, South San Francisco, Calif.
“These new dedicated partners offer an unprecedented level of coverage and support when it comes to our KDI diesel engines,” said Kyle Brandemuhl, director of diesel engines for Kohler. “We engaged these new companies to ensure we’re always responsive to the needs of equipment manufacturers – from coast to coast – and remain positioned to provide highly customized diesel solutions that will meet their diverse needs.”
The national Kohler KDI diesel distribution network now includes the following highly regarded sales organizations:
- Superior Diesel (Rhinelander, Wis.)
- Northstar Power (Ankeny, Iowa)
- Engines Inc. (Jonesboro, Ark.)
- Flint Power (Albany, Ga.)
- CK Power (St. Louis, Mo.)
- Power Equipment Systems (Salem, Ore.)
- Loftin Equipment (Phoenix, Ariz.)
- HG Makelim (South San Francisco, Calif.)
The KDI diesel engine line now includes eight models, all of which meet the latest emissions standards without a bulky and inefficient diesel particulate filter (DPF). The compact engines are designed to deliver optimal power and torque for the toughest jobs while also maximizing fuel consumption and limiting emissions.
