Kohler has announced that it has relaunched its power businesses
Now branded under Kohler Energy, the companies will continue to provide energy resilience to homes, businesses, and communities around the world. The new company offers solutions across multiple sectors, such as for homes, industries, and powertrain. The company’s portfolio also includes Clarke Energy, Kohler Uninterruptible Power, Heila Technologies, and Curtis Instruments. Kohler will also be implementing new Kohler Energy brand elements across its portfolio of businesses in the coming months.
With the help of low-carbon fuels, increased engine efficiency and power density, EV controls, and a growing line of high-tech solutions, Kohler will invest more in the development of new products. Most recently, Kohler became the first manufacturer worldwide to receive certification for all of its diesel engines and generators running on HVO, a fuel with 90% less carbon.
Brian Melka, Kohler Energy group president, said, “Our newly named Kohler Energy celebrates the industry-leading solutions Kohler has been offering for over 100 years and aligns with our ongoing leadership in resiliency, performance, and energy capabilities that delight our customers.”
“Our new brand presence better reflects the modern, forward-looking and design-oriented characteristics that Kohler is known for and highlights the solutions we bring to market that provide energy resilience to our customers’ homes, businesses, and tools to get jobs done,” he added.
Earlier this year, Kohler collaborated with Robert Swan on his successful journey using only renewable energy sources across the Antarctic landmass to the South Pole. The company provided Swan's voyage with a customised Kohler generator that used a Kohler diesel engine powered by HVO and a microgrid system mged by Heila EDGE technology.
“Our collective focus is to help sustain people and communities around the world and build energy resiliency. As we start to design our future to best support our customers, we are investing in clean energy, advanced technologies, and improved production and performance capabilities,” added Melka.
