INDMAR AND STEYR MOTORS REACH AGREEMENT
October 26, 2006
(Millington,TN) - Officials of Indmar Products Company and
Steyr Motors have signed a multi-year agreement that will
add one of Steyr's most popular diesels to Indmar's engine
line. Chuck Rowe, president of Indmar and Steyr Motors CEO
Rudolf Mandorfer made the announcement jointly.
The agreement calls for Indmar to purchase, brand and sell
Steyr's popular 250-hp, MO256H45 engine as the Indmar 256
Marine Diesel by Steyr. Indmar will warranty the engines
and service them though its dealer network. Indmar will
initially target the ski boat market, where it is the
world's leading supplier of propulsion engines.
"The strategic alliance with Steyr assures our customers of
the same quality and service they expect from Indmar
gasoline engines," Rowe said. "This new diesel will provide
a viable alternative engine, especially for commercial
operators and operators of other high-use vessels."
Steyr's Mandorfer said, "With its outstanding
weight-to-horsepower ratio, the 256 engine is a perfect
choice for Indmar's ski boat and wake boat customers. This
is the beginning of an excellent, long-term relationship
between our two companies."
