“This is an exciting and transformational product launch,” said Kohler’s group president-power Tom Cromwell. “After a very collaborative and thorough worldwide development process, we’re very pleased to be rolling out this new line of generators in APAC. We expect strong response to these advanced new gensets that will offer beneficial cost savings and unrivaled performance to our customers in this region.”
