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 company’s key suppliers. JCB utilizes a variety of Kohler Direct Injection 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 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.”

The Kohler Direct Injection diesel engine line now includes eight models, which all meet the latest emissions standards without a diesel particulate filter.
