KOHLER, Wis. — Kohler continues to strengthen its distribution network for the company’s KDI diesel engines with the addition of Diesel-Bec, based in Boisbriand, Quebec. Diesel-Bec is a longtime distributor of diesel engines, which will help to bring highly-customized Kohler diesel solutions to equipment manufacturers in Canada while also enhancing service and parts availability for end users. The new distributor will cover Eastern Canada, including Ontario and Quebec, as well as Atlantic Canada and will work closely with both new and existing Kohler engine dealers throughout these regions.
“We’ve been interested in enhancing the support and value-add packaging capabilities of our KDI diesel engines in Canada and Diesel-Bec is the ideal company to make this happen,” said Kyle Brandemuhl, director of diesel engines for Kohler. “It has been incredibly rewarding for us to engage more and more distribution partners throughout the U.S. and Canada as our KDI diesel engines continue to deliver power, performance, and reliability in a diverse array of applications all around the world.”
In the North American market, the award-winning Kohler Direct Injection (KDI) diesel engine line meets the latest emissions standards without a diesel particulate filter (DPF). The impressively compact engines are designed to deliver optimal power and torque for the toughest jobs while also maximizing fuel consumption and limiting emissions.
Kohler also recently introduced a new global emissions platform for its KDI lineup, called Kohler Flex. Kohler Flex is a suite of advanced engine systems which are integrated into the KDI line – based on the specific needs of global equipment manufacturers – to meet every emissions standard in the world. Kohler Flex combines the existing design advantages of the KDI diesel engine line, including its high-pressure common rail system (CRS) and cooled-gas recirculation (C-EGR), with the most compact after-treatment devices to deliver an ideal emissions solution for leading equipment manufactures around the globe.
