By Mike Brezonick21 September 2017

Rolls-Royce Power Systems announced that Japanese company Tominaga & Co., Ltd. will distribute MTU engines and products to the  marine, oil and gas, rail and construction and industrial engine markets as a distributor for MTU Japan Co., Ltd. MTU Japan’s primary focus lies in construction and industrial, mobile, mining, agricultural and power generation applications.

The Tominaga company started out in business over a century ago and has been an MTU partner since 2000. Based in Tokyo, the Japanese distributor previously served companies such as Daimler-Benz Japan and Detroit Diesel and now employs approximately 150 staff.

“We see huge market potential for our products in Japan, so Tominaga and our subsidiary MTU Japan will be working together to expand our customer service activities in all market segments,” said Matthias Vogel, deputy executive vice president Sales, Service and Network at MTU. “We are confident that we will be very well placed to tackle the challenges of the future.”  

With a 20,000 sq. ft. logistics center near Osaka and three fully equipped service workshops in Funabashi, Himeji and Kyushu, Tominaga has all the facilities needed to offer comprehensive aftersales support. And since each of the service workshops has test stands, it will also be capable of carrying out complete overhauls of MTU engines.
