Celebrating 60 years of Engineering Excellence

2017 marks the 60th Anniversary of production of the very first Kawasaki general purpose petrol engines. 

In 1957 the first 2 and 4-stroke engines, the KF3 and KF4, came off the production lines at Kawasaki Heavy Industries Akashi Works plant in Japan. 

Since then, Kawasaki Engines has developed into a global company with a reputation for producing high performance, high quality petrol engines powering professional machinery in the industrial, grounds-care, turfcare, utility and related markets.

Kawasaki Engines Europe are celebrating this 60th Anniversary throughout 2017; with our Distributors and OEMs, at trade shows, in the media, and through promotions and competitions. Take a look below to find out more about this significant year and how you can be involved.
