one of the biggest industrial diesel motor
manufacturers in the World Most of what they produce is made in India
the web site is
Greaves Farymann Diesel GmbH
I beg to differ Gideon, Bukh diesels have been manufactured in Denmark
, and still are! The factory was owned by A.P.Møller/Mærsk until 1995, when it was sold to Aabenraa Motorfabrik (see Aabenraa Motorfabrik - Heinrich Callesen A/S
) who manufacture them now.
Farymann distributes them in Germany etc.
They have a good reputation for long service
with minimum hassle, but as with all manufacturers, some models are better than others. They tend to be a bit heavier than the Volvo/Yanmars.
