The competition, judged by a special jury of industry engineers, recognized unique new products and companies with an exceptional commitment to research and innovation.

“It’s very rewarding for the KOHLER KD Series to be recognized among the best new industrial products,” said François Cote, president of Drumco Energie Inc., the Canada-based KOHLER distributor responsible for showcasing the KD Series at MCEE 2017. “During the show, we reviewed the features and benefits of the KOHLER KD Series with nearly 400 key stakeholders and the response was extremely positive. Claiming the new product award really helped to reinforce the positive feedback we received from everyone throughout the show. It was definitely a positive introduction to this new comprehensive line of industrial generators.”
