Kohler Energy Engines to Showcase Innovative Solutions and Continue the Dialogue on the New Strategy at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023
Las Vegas, NV (March 2023) – Kohler Energy Engines is participating in the CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023 trade show in Las Vegas from March 14-18, at booth S84406, South Hall 4.
Kohler Energy Engines will showcase its sustainable and innovative solutions, sharing the booth with Curtis Instruments, a global technology leader in the electrification of off-road and on-road vehicles, machinery and equipment.
The link between Kohler Co. and Curtis Instruments began with the acquisition of Curtis by the group in January 2022. This strategic move aimed to expand and diversify Kohler Co.’s product portfolio by leveraging Curtis' expertise in electrification. Kohler Energy Engines' vision is to develop sustainable and technically viable EV system solutions that increase the performance of internal combustion engines alongside all-electric solutions.
This vision is part of Kohler's new strategy toward a more sustainable future, announced last October 2022. The strategy outlines the next steps that will move the company to develop a wide range of solutions to meet the diversified needs demanded by today's evolving market. The strategy seeks to transform ICE technology by continuing to invest in internal combustion engines that can deliver clean and affordable energy to customers for years to come, and includes alternative fuels, electrification and hybridization, and hydrogen as potential green fuel.
In addition to showcasing its innovative solutions and continuing the dialogue on the new strategy, Kohler Energy Engines is also proud to be among the top 10 finalists in the CONEXPO-CON/AGG Next Level Awards with its latest KSD engine. The award celebrates exhibiting companies that are developing products, technologies, and services designed to advance the industry. Kohler Energy Engines will be honored with a sign in its booth, from which trade show attendees can scan a QR code and vote for their favorite featured entry.
