Continental Engines was recently honored as a leading distributor in North America from international manufacturer and recognized expert of diesel technology, Hatz Diesel. Chairman of the Hatz Advisory Board and fourth-generation family member Wolfram Hatz, along with President and CEO of Hatz Diesel of North America Mike Hartoonian and Director of Sales and Marketing Bernhard Richter-Schutzeneder, presented the Upstate company with a symbolic engine during the event at its headquarters. The presented engine was the very first produced for the market within the new H-Series, and it was signed by Hatz as it crossed the assembly line.

“Continental Engines has served our customers for more than 50 years, and we are proud that with a strong history, we continue to grow and achieve milestones,” said President of Continental Engines Jeff Cooper. “Our success is due not only to the capabilities of our talented team, but also the partnerships we have built with our engine manufacturers and suppliers. It is a privilege to host the Hatz team and receive this accolade from a leading global brand.”

Hatz premiered the production of the new H-Series product line in Chicago last year. The line is an innovative development due to a groundbreaking downsizing approach, which allows customers to replace larger engines that have a high-power demand. It is also the brand’s most significant endeavor into liquid-cooled engines and features an environmentally-friendly design with lower emissions. Hatz H-Series engines are utilized worldwide in industrial equipment such as asphalt paving and maintenance machines, portable fireboxes, high pressure sprayers, and dewatering pumps that remove standing water, among others.

“The Hatz team is proud of the technological advancements within the new H-series, which offers a more extensive range of applications,” said Hartoonian. “We are thrilled to recognize Continental Engines as the leading distributor in North America for H50 engine sales. They are a team of experienced and knowledgeable professionals dedicated to quality customer service, and a valuable partner for Hatz.”
