Kohler extends distribution network for KDI diesel engines

Kohler Engines announced December 13 that it has expanded the distribution network for its Kohler Direct Injection (KDI) diesel engines by formalizing partnerships with five highly experienced sales organizations: Superior Diesel, Rhinelander, Wis.; Northstar Power LLC, Ankeny, Iowa; Engines Inc., Jonesboro, Ark.; Flint Power, Albany, Ga.; and CK Power, St. Louis. All five of the new Kohler KDI diesel engine distributors bring strong marketplace recognition, as well as advanced value-add packaging capabilities to equipment manufacturers seeking premium diesel solutions.

“We’re pleased to extend our distribution network as part of our ongoing commitment to broadening and enhancing our relationships with leading equipment manufacturers across the country,” said Kyle Brandemuhl, director of diesel engines for Kohler Engines. “Our new distributors all have proven track records and understand the unique value proposition that Kohler’s KDI technology brings to manufacturers seeking powerful and compact diesel engines.”

Kohler’s 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.

“We’re proud to represent Kohler Engines,” said Brian Wendt, president of Superior Diesel. “Kohler’s diesel engines are really well crafted and fit perfectly within our existing product portfolio. Even more importantly, we’ve seen high demand for this technology in the market, so we believe there’s very strong opportunities for continued growth.”
