KOHLER, Wis. – Kohler Engines has expanded the distribution network for its KDI diesel engines by formalizing partnerships with five experienced sales organizations. These companies include: Superior Diesel, Rhinelander, Wisconsin; Northstar Power, Ankeny, Iowa; Engines Inc., Jonesboro, Arkansas; Flint Power, Albany, Georgia; and CK Power, St. Louis.

“We’re pleased to extend our distribution network as part of our ongoing commitment to broadening and enhancing our relationships with leading equipment manufactures 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.”

The Kohler Direct Injection (KDI) diesel engine line now includes eight models, all of which meet the latest emissions standards without a bulky and inefficient diesel particulate filter, or 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.

“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.”
