KOHLER, Wis. – March 7, 2017 – In late 2016, KOHLER announced a significant expansion and strengthening of its distribution network for the company’s KDI diesel engines by partnering with five highly experienced sales organizations. Today, in conjunction with ConExpo 2017, KOHLER is highlighting three new partnerships, which bring an all-new level of value-add packaging capabilities and other benefits to leading diesel equipment manufacturers.
