We're nearly 100. And only getting better with age.
In 1920, we introduced the first automatic standby generator, the KOHLER® Automatic Power and Light, to rural America. A few years later, KOHLER generators powered Admiral Richard Byrd's historic expedition to Antarctica. They helped light the way for Hoover Dam's construction crew and provided radio communications during WWII - even helping rescue a sunken submarine. Almost a century later, we're still innovating.
