Kohler Announces Expanded Distribution Network

In conjunction with ConExpo 2017, Kohler announced that it has added three new western distributors to its diesel engine distribution network. The three new members of the Kohler Direct Injection (KDI) diesel distribution network are 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 three new distributors join the existing Kohler diesel network organizations announced late last year. They are:

  • Superior Diesel – Rhinelander, Wis.
  • Northstar Power – Ankeny, Ia.
  • Engines Inc. – Jonesboro, Ark.
  • Flint Power – Albany, Ga.
  • CK Power – St. Louis, Mo.

The Kohler KDI diesel engine line now covers eight models, all of which meet the latest emissions standards without a diesel particulate filter (DPF), Kohler said.
