Yanmar Produces 10 millionth vertical water-cooled engine

Osaka, Japan (April 8, 2019) – Yanmar has announced the production of its 10 millionth vertical water-cooled engine.

Yanmar started production of vertical water-cooled engines – the main product of Yanmar’s industrial power products business, at its former Nagahama factory in 1968 with most production currently taking place at the company’s Biwa factory – the so-called “mother factory” for this type of engine. Ibuki factory in Japan and Yanmar Engine (Shandong) Co., Ltd. in China also produce the engines. As the first company to succeed in making a compact diesel engine of a practical size in 1933, Yanmar has long been a leader of innovation in the industry. With the introduction of ever stricter emissions regulations, Yanmar has once again taken the initiative and met the various environmental regulations, while pursuing lower fuel consumption and higher output, pioneering industry-leading industrial engine technology.  

Yanmar regards the achievement of this 10 millionth unit as a major milestone and will continue to work on development and production of high-quality, highly reliable engines that meet the diverse needs of our customers.
