MTU was founded in Germany in 1909 (MTU Aero Engines), and has a long standing tradition of building heavy duty engines in all types of applications. Detroit Diesel who also had a similar history of building quality engines was founded in 1937 in Detroit. In 1994, MTU and Detroit partnered to develop the 2000 & 4000 Series Engines. This started a long relationship that would lead to the formation of MTU Onsite Energy in 2000. We have consistently built some of the highest quality engine and alternator platforms in the market since. Please contact us at www.unitedpowergen.com to learn more!
