In line with its policy of ongoing improvement, Kohler Engines is renewing its Reggio Emilia production facility, which was recently recognised as the Kohler Group's international design and development centre for diesel engines. The company is now sporting a new look. The old company colours have given way to a more contemporary coal grey that better reflects the subtle shades of Kohler engines.

But the most significant new development is the establishment of the Demo Area - a space devoted to introductions and demonstrations that enables customers and partners to hold events reserved for dealers and distributors. The project expresses the company's perspective on the "Customer Experience", according to which Kohler Engines consistently provides top-notch support to customers not only as a supplier of products, but also in the field of service and technical assistance. Kohler is an innovative partner that meets the very highest standards of quality through cutting edge technology and a global support organisation for customers.

Kohler-Lombardini Network: our service is just an app away

In order to provide an ever more efficient service to our customers and to strengthen the group's territorial presence, the new Kohler-Lombardini Network mobile app is now available to download from the Apple Store or Google Market Place. The app uses geolocation to find your nearest sales and technical service points, while indicating the whole route by using Google Maps technology. The results can also be filtered based on the features and services required, guaranteeing a high level of interaction with the user and transforming the tool into the perfect solution to promote the sales network and the services offered. Developed in Italian, English, French and Spanish, the app lets you contact the dealer directly and share the contact information in an e-mail. The mobile app version of the Dealer Locator system is also available on your tablet and smartphone. Download it from the Apple Store or Google Market Place.

A great engine now comes in a small package

The new KDI 3404 engine, which extends the line of Kohler diesel engines to 100 Kw, was developed according to the "best fit" principle, i.e. aiming to be "the best engine with a reduced footprint". 
Many technological solutions have been implemented on the new engine in order to reach this goal: its innovative injection system with a high-pressure common rail device, its 4 valves per cylinder, its fixed geometry turbo and its EGR valve, make it possible to reach standards of performance that are usually seen with higher displacement engines.
In configurations above 56 kW, the KDI 3404 engine complies with Stage IV - Tier 4 Final exhaust gas standards thanks to the use of SCR (Selective Catalyst Reduction) to abate the Nox in the exhaust fumes. The special SCR solution chosen by KOHLER Engines helps to underscore the "best fit" philosophy.  The "all in one" SCR system contains the DOC (Diesel Oxidation Catalyst), the MIXING Pipe and the SCR in a single piece of equipment. The extremely compact footprint of the whole device and the possibility to fit it at any angle, greatly simplifies its integration with the machine.
Since the compact, innovative "all-in-one" SCR system is set up to house a DPF, the KDI 3404TCR-SCR already meets Stage V requirements, too.
For this and many other reasons, Diesel Magazine chose the latest new creation from Kohler Engines to be the magazine's Diesel of the Year.
The Diesel of the Year® award is given to the year's most technically innovative diesel engine. 
It's the latest challenge met by Kohler!

Our engine, your engine

You Design, because the customer is the core of our product. In 1933 Adelmo Lombardini and his brothers founded the company, when agricultural mechanics was just at the beginning. This was the first seed in a long success story and a winning intuition because it was founded on the profound value that each single engine must be made perfectly, with high quality standards usually reserved to works of art. Today, Lombardini is the undisputed leader in Europe for diesel engines production and this achievement is not just the result of product innovation and quality, but is also due to the attention we pay to our customers. A thorough pre-sales service aims to understand every customer demands, turning it into a tailor made product. The versatility and wide range of our products and the competence of the staff turn into impeccable customer service: our expertise and competence in engines is guarantee of perfect suitability to the machinery they will be installed in. Every piece version is created upon requirements and our specialized technicians or applications department can even install they directly on the machinery. A trusted solution to make our engine become your engine - just yours.

iService: the new online technical assistance platform for Kohler Engines

Once again, the KOHLER Group is redefining customer service standards with
iService, the new multimedia platform which adds the increased availability and ease of use offered by technological evolution to the traditional tool for viewing technical manuals.
This innovative solution combines efficiency and effectiveness of information in a single environment containing the entire Kohler Engines aftersales universe: use and maintenance manuals, workshop manuals, spare parts catalogues, and the entire area dedicated to the warranty system. The system also offers the opportunity to take advantage of online distance learning and to assess the level of expertise attained via an automatic testing system.
The system is initially only available for KDI engines, but will be progressively extended to cover all KOHLER Engines petrol and diesel product ranges.
The platform, which has been designed to meet the needs both of the service network and of end users, offers simple and intuitive interactive contents, which can be easily accessed from smartphones and tablets as well as PCs.

Impossible? We Made It!

Would you ever have imagined that you would find a global company based in Reggio Emilia capable of recognizing and realizing your talent? We did! A company is what it makes. Yet the difference lies in who does the making, and how it gets made. We, the people who work at the Lombardini group, are the most important strategic resource, the heart of the entire process. Here, research applied to talent is just as important as research applied to engines. When we find talent, we invest to transform it into expertise, and thus into a career: the ASFOR-accredited internal corporate training program, company master's degree for the development of managerial skills and the over 20,000 hours of training provided each year are intended to allow us to reach the levels of excellence that make Lombardini a world leader in its sector.
