MWM Becoming Caterpillar Energy Solutions
On November 1, MWM GmbH will change its name to Caterpillar Energy Solutions GmbH. The name change solely affects the legal entity and the established MWM brand is being continued, the company said. This step is being made to underscore MWM's belonging to Caterpillar.
Since acquiring MWM two years ago, Caterpillar turned MWM’s Mannheim location into its global Gas Center of Excellence. This included the modernization of machinery and facilities and hiring of new employees.
Caterpillar Energy Solutions GmbH is pursuing a two-brand strategy. The yellow Cat power generation sets will continue to be distributed through the worldwide Cat dealer network and the blue MWM units will continue to be sold in the market directly and via the existing MWM international distributor network. These two sales channels are completed by the service division that handles maintenance of the gen-sets and supplies customers with original manufacturer's parts.
