Manitou and Yanmar form partnership
By Lindsey Anderson03 April 2017
Manitou Americas, Inc. has partnered with Yanmar to offer remanufactured engines under the XPRT Genuine Parts brand name.
Remanufactured engines are specifically designed to fit any Gehl or Mustang branded machines operating in North America.
Yanmar Americas remanufactures engines in the U.S. According to the company, lead-times are less than 15 days on most engines (versus 120 days with new engines), and carry a one-year OEM factory warranty, backed by the Gehl and Mustang dealer network.
“We are launching this offer, in partnership with Yanmar Americas, as another example of our efforts to reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO) for our end-customers,” said David Harrison, director of aftersales, Manitou Americas, Inc. “Remanufactured engines are more cost-effective than new engines and offer significantly reduced lead-times, saving customers time and money, exhibiting our confidence that these engines will meet or exceed our customers’ expectations in terms of quality and reliability.”
The remanufactured engines are currently stocked at the Manitou Americas, Inc. distribution center in Belvidere, IL and can be purchased through any Gehl or Mustang dealer within North America.
