- Cologne-Porz site is DEUTZ's most important assembly plant worldwide
- Manufacturing of camshafts and crankshafts gets under way in the new shaft centre
Today the three millionth engine came off the production line at DEUTZ's main factory in Cologne-Porz. This engine represents yet another milestone in the long history of the Cologne-based engine manufacturer. Just last year, DEUTZ notched up the nine millionth engine to be built worldwide since the Company was founded more than 150 years ago.
DEUTZ opened the engine plant in Cologne-Porz back in June 1993 – at the time one of the most modern of its kind in the world. Today, Cologne-Porz is home to DEUTZ's most important assembly plant worldwide and the Company's headquarters. A few weeks ago, production of camshafts and crankshafts got under way at DEUTZ's new shaft centre in Cologne-Porz, representing further progress in the consolidation of the Company's German sites.
Today, DEUTZ is one of the world's leading independent engine manufacturers and employs around 3,700 people. As a full-line engine specialist, DEUTZ offers a broad spectrum of liquid-cooled and air-cooled engines with capacities ranging from 25kW to 520kW that are used in construction equipment, agricultural machinery, material handling equipment, stationary equipment, commercial vehicles, rail vehicles and other applications.
