Kohler acquires Brazilian company

Kohler has acquired Maquigeral, a generator company in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

SDMO, Kohler’s French subsidiary, will manage Maquigeral. The company plans to initially focus on Brazil by increasing the product range and introducing more technology into the product line.

Current Maquigeral executive Sandra Battistella will continue as general manager and will report to Jean-Marie Soula, managing director of SDMO. Georges LeGall, SDMO’s director of engineering, will relocate to Brazil and serve as the deputy general manager.
