Navistar Engine Group Expands Diesel Offerings for Belarus Off-Road Equipment Manufacturers

MINSK, Belarus -- Navistar® Engine Group, an operating arm of Navistar, Inc., today announced an expanded commitment to supplying off-road diesel engines to Belarus manufacturers of diesel-powered agricultural, construction and industrial equipment.

Presenting at the Belagro international agricultural exhibition here, the company unveiled its full line of off-road diesels across the 37 - 254 kW (50-340 hp) range. In addition to current International® brand engine models that meet European Stage 2 emissions standards, Navistar showcased its new Stage 3 emissions-compliant MaxxForce™ diesels that in the future will help Belarus equipment manufacturers strategically expand their businesses in European export markets.

“Working with Belarus government and industry, we have enjoyed 15 years of success in this country,” said David LaPalomento, sales and marketing vice president, Navistar Engine Group. “Today, we move from a niche player with two highly respected products to a broad-line diesel engine supplier to off-road equipment makers throughout the region.”

In Belarus, Navistar has long exported in-line six-cylinder diesels that power Minsk Tractor Works farm tractors and Gomselmash combine harvesters. Following Navistar’s 2005 acquisition of leading South American diesel engine maker MWM Motores Diesel Ltda., the company now offers diesel powerplants for a wider range of agricultural tractors, construction equipment and industrial power generation sets.

“Our long-range goal is to be a fully integrated partner with Belarussian vehicle and equipment makers,” said LaPalomento. “Local sourcing of engines that meet tightening global emissions standards will allow them to profitably market their products throughout Europe and Asia.”
