NORCROSS, GA (December 12, 2019) – Diesel Progress magazine has named DEUTZ Corporation as its 2019 Newsmaker of the Year. This award recognizes the person, product, company, trend, technology or news event that the publication’s editorial board deems to have generated the most news over the past 12 months.
“In a year that’s seen increased interest in electrification and other alternatives to internal combustion engines, we’re particularly proud to receive this recognition from Diesel Progress,” said Robert Mann, president and CEO of DEUTZ Corporation.
Diesel Progress considers a number of factors when determining the Newsmaker of the Year, including discussions with industry stakeholders, website and social media traffic and anecdotal impressions about what’s generating the most “buzz” among people in the power industry.
The publication cited numerous reasons for choosing DEUTZ Corporation for this award, including the introduction of 1.2 L and 1.7 L small diesel engines.
Other notable events included the introduction of gasoline powered block engines to the industrial market, unveiling of DEUTZ Power Solutions gensets across the Americas, expansion of the DEUTZ Power Center operations footprint, and the increasing popularity of DEUTZ Xchange remanufactured engines.
“Our editorial board really took notice of DEUTZ Corporation’s many activities in 2019,” said Mike Osenga, publisher of Diesel Progress. “This was a highly competitive year, and our board had its longest discussion about the recipient of this award since its inception. However, DEUTZ Corporation eventually emerged as the clear winner.”
