KOHLER, Wis. — Kohler announces Medart Inc. as the central distributor for Kohler gasoline engines along with gasoline and diesel service parts in Texas. This announcement follows the successful acquisition by Medart Inc. of the small engines business of Waukesha-Pearce LLC (WPI). Medart is a longtime distributor of Kohler gasoline engines, portable generators, and pumps in several key U.S. markets. The distributor is well known for its deep understanding of Kohler engines as well as its successful, 50-year history of serving the manufacturer’s expanding customer base.
“We have a long, proven track record with Medart and we’re pleased the company’s territory is now expanding to include Texas,” said Chris Rector, director, distribution sales and service for Kohler engines. “The team at WPI will be working closely with Medart over the next several months to ensure a smooth and seamless transition for all Kohler engines customers being served by WPI in Texas. In fact, Medart will be working out of WPI’s Houston facility for a short time until Medart moves into its own Houston-based facility to best serve its newest customers.”
While Medart Inc. assumes responsibility for Kohler gasoline engines along with gasoline and diesel service parts throughout Texas, the Kohler diesel engines business in the state will continue to be served by Engines Inc.
