Engines

Award-wining engine producer JCB Power Systems has announced the appointment of a new distributor in North America.

HG Makelim Co., of San Francisco is a leading distributor of power products, supplying industrial engines, diesel fuel injection systems and generator sets and accessories throughout the western United States.

Tony Domenici, Vice President and General Manager of the engine division of HG Makelim, said: “The JCB line of engines is complementary to our engine portfolio and fills a horsepower gap for us.  I know that JCB manufactures high quality products, and when the company started to manufacture engines, I knew the quality would follow suit. The more I found out about how the company had designed the engine range specifically for the Off-Highway segment, the more I knew we would be able to find customers for the engines.”

Robert Payne, General Manager of JCB Power Systems’ OEM Sales, said: “JCB Power Systems is establishing a comprehensive distribution network across North America and this latest signing provides additional cover across the west of the country. The USA is an important market for us and we are building a quality network by partnering with top quality companies such as HG Makelim Co. This is an exciting opportunity for JCB Power Systems to further extend the reach of their Tier 4 compliant engines into OEM businesses on the West Coast and further afield.”
