MWM International To Supply Engines To JCB, Pauny
MWM International, the South American based subsidiary of Navistar, announced it has signed a new agreement with JCB under which it will supply 2000 engines a year to JCB for the next four years. The engines, primarily the MaxxForce 4.3 rated 85 and 110 hp, will be used by JCB in new construction equipment, MWM said. Shipments are scheduled to begin in the second quarter, MWM said.
The engines will be manufactured at MWM’s Santo Amaro plant in São Paulo state, Brazil.
“This new agreement will give both companies more competitiveness in the Brazilian market,” said Thomas Püschel, Sales and Marketing director at MWM International. “JCB will keep counting on recognized engines in the segment with great services chain extension, with more than 480 spots in the country.”
On the last five years, MWM International said has grown its business by 150% in the off-road segment, including Mercosur and export markets. The company has been selling engines to JCB for four years.
MWM said it will also supply MaxxForce 4.1A diesels rated 83 hp to Argentine ag equipment manufacturer Pauny SA. The engines will be used to power Pauny’s new 180 A tractor line and MWM said it expects to supply approximately 300 engines a year.
“Pauny is one of the main manufacturers in Argentina,” said Püschel. “With this demand, we will have the opportunity of showing quality, technology and roughness in our products in the Argentinean market. Our target is to achieve new clients to increase the production of the plant in Jesús Maria, Córdoba.”
