Celebrating Our History of Diesel Engine Manufacturing

December 2, 2019

Whether they’re providing backup power for hospitals, running equipment in a quarry, or even creating the electricity to run the lights and rides of a carnival, our engines are powerful and reliable. They are ready to do the work both inside and outside of our machines and have been for 88 years.  

To celebrate, check out this video showing our engines at work outside the machine.

And with a range of 5 to 16,000 kW engines, we’re equipped to power today and built to power tomorrow. We serve today’s customers with a variety of applications including:

  • Electric power: Our commercial and industrial generator sets are used in a variety of applications. When the world needs power, we’re equal to the challenge. 

  • Industrial engines: Our diesel and gas industrial engines are ready for application and provide a powerful advantage.

  • Marine power systems: Cat and MaK propulsion engines power vessels to any port. With the industry's largest range of engines, they provide the reliability our customer’s need. 

  • Oil and gas: These prime movers are designed to be durable and to deliver low operating costs. And they have been proving it, day in and day out, in oil and gas applications throughout the world, since the 1930's.

We look forward to the years ahead powering the industries and businesses that communities rely on.
