On June 16, the three millionth engine came off the production line at DEUTZ's main factory in Cologne-Porz. This engine represents yet another milestone in the long history of the Cologne-based engine manufacturer. Just last year, DEUTZ notched up the nine millionth engine to be built worldwide since the company was founded more than 150 years ago.
DEUTZ opened the engine plant in Cologne-Porz back in June 1993 – at the time one of the most modern of its kind in the world. Today, Cologne-Porz is home to DEUTZ's most important assembly plant worldwide and the company's headquarters. A few weeks ago, production of camshafts and crankshafts got under way at DEUTZ's new shaft center in Cologne-Porz, representing further progress in the consolidation of the company's German sites.
