New Worldwide Distributor Network For EMD Power Products
—Free Literature Available— A new worldwide distributor network that will sell and service EMD engines, generators and motors in the marine, industrial and oil drilling markets has been established by the Electro-Motive Division (EMD) of General Motors to increase flexibility and improve customer service.
Distributors, with their authorized parts sales and service centers, will provide local availability of genuine EMD parts and rebuild components in assigned areas of responsibility.
They will handle all direct sales and field service activities, including technical assistance and "hands on" maintenance.
Distributors will market EMD power products, engines and accessories.
They will take basic components, furnished by EMD, and custom assemble them for specific applications.
This will provide flexibility in customizing designs to meet specific customer requirements for EMD products. Basic components development will continue to be handled by EMD's central engineering staff, thereby ensuring customers will be getting state-of-the-art equipment.
An EMD sales and service staff for power products will be headquartered in LaGrange, 111. This group will provide sales, technical service, and engineering support to distributors.
Most of the distributors, who are assigned a specific territory of sales and service responsibility (see illustration for details), will carry both EMD and Detroit Diesel Corporation products, providing customers a full line of engines with a broad power range.
Kelly Jones, EMD power products business manager, said, "There are a lot of companies in the marketplace right now representing themselves as suppliers of EMD products. It's important for power products customers to know that EMD's new distributors and their assigned parts sales and service centers are the only ones authorized by GM to sell genuine EMD products." The following is a listing of the new distributors.
