Liebherr and Deutz have announced they are to work together to improve the distribution and servicing of diesel engines.
The two companies recently signed a cooperation agreement that will expand the collaboration that already exists between them. Deutz AG will also be distributing Liebherr engines in the power range of 200 to 620 kW, bringing the total to four Liebherr engine models in the power range.
The four and six-cylinder engines are being developed to comply with emission standards EU Stage V, US Tier 4, China IV und EU Stage IIIA, and thus to satisfy future legal emission regulations. Serial production is due to start in 2019, just in time for the introduction of the new EU Stage V emission regulations.
“We are looking forward to further expand the business relations between our companies,” said Gebhard Schwarz, managing director of Liebherr-Component Technologies AG.
“With its worldwide distribution network and its comprehensive servicing solutions, Deutz can reach out to new customer groups for our collaborative engines,” added Schwarz.
Dr. Frank Hiller, chairman of Deutz AG, explains, “The new engines resulting out of this cooperation with Liebherr perfectly complement our product range, allowing us to target further power ranges and applications. In this way, customers will profit from our integration and servicing expertise.”
