JCB Honors Kohler with Best Quality and Best Overall Supplier Awards| Construction News


Kohler Engines was named the recipient of the Best Quality and Best Overall Supplier awards by JCB North America at a recent event for the JCB's key suppliers.

JCB – one of the world’s top three manufacturers of construction equipment – uses a variety of Kohler direct injection (KDI) diesel engines in its equipment, including its popular and well-regarded lineup of compact excavators, and skid steer loaders.

“It’s incredibly rewarding to be recognized among the best   suppliers by a highly respected partner like JCB North America,” said John Chowaniak, senior national accounts manager for Kohler Engines.

“Kohler works diligently to be a front-runner in diesel engine technology, and we’re humbled to be singled out by JCB for the consistent value we bring to the company and – by extension – to users of JCB compact equipment throughout North America,” Chowaniak said. 

The Kohler direct injection (KDI) diesel engine line now includes eight models, all meeting the latest emission 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 optimizing fuel consumption and limiting emissions.
