Global leader in the generating set market

3rd world leader in generating sets

Founded in the French city of Brest in 1966, SDMO joined the international Kohler group in 2005, with its Power Systems activity making the group the world's third-largest generator manufacturer. In 2016, the SDMO brand became KOHLER-SDMO to reflect the fact that it was part of the Kohler group, and to create a direct link with the launch of its new KD SERIES product range which integrated 800 to 4500 kVA motors from the KOHLER brand. 

The switch to the KOHLER brand in 2021 completed this transition.

This unique brand reflects the resolute commitment and ability Kohler has to provide customers across the world with an ever-increasing level of quality, adaptability and innovation. It also represents the synergy of essential products and services for customers wishing to expand their energy solutions across the globe.

From petrol or diesel or HVO power generating sets to continuous or backup electricity production plants, including domestic generators, sound-proofed and robust for the rental power market and standard industrial generators, KOHLER develops its solutions for all sectors where power is needed.
