Yanmar Establishes European Energy Company
By Jack Burke26 September 2019
Yanmar said it has established an energy company that will provide advanced, full-service solutions to customers in Europe in gas-powered generation and heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC).
The establishment of Yanmar Energy System Europe GmbH (YESE) follows the Eschenfelder KKU Group’s move to join the Yanmar Group in April 2019. As a specialist in the design, engineering, distribution and installation of resource-saving refrigeration, cooling and heating solutions for trade and industry, KKU joined with Yanmar group company, Yanmar Energy Systems Co. Ltd (YES), a leader in the development, production and distribution of gas engine heat pumps, chiller and cogeneration solutions for the HVAC industry worldwide, to provide development and manufacturing capabilities that enable the production of tailormade solutions for complicated situations where standard solutions fall short, the company said.
“The establishment of this new company consolidates Yanmar’s wide-ranging energy systems portfolio and capabilities under the one roof,” said YESE CEO Yosuke Tajima. “We can now offer full-service, customized solutions to customers across a broad spectrum of gas-powered generation and HVAC applications.
“This move further positions Yanmar for significant growth in European markets by realizing synergies between company functions and optimizing pan-European business management.”
Headquartered in Marl, Germany, the new entity will enable Yanmar to strengthen its development activities to further expand tailor-made solutions for its energy customers in Germany and the rest of Europe.
