Hatz Great Britain was founded in 1979, taking over from Hatz Concessionaires, a privately owned Dealership. From modest beginnings, the marketing campaign was based on the unique Silent Pack range of engines and sales have expanded in the UK market to the point where Hatz enjoy the Lion's share of the Industrial Air-Cooled Diesel engine market.
The success generated by the Silent Pack range of engines which specialise in environmentally friendly features such as exceptionally quiet noise levels and ultra clean exhaust emission levels, has enabled Hatz to introduce other new innovative engine models.
A full range of parts to support all engine models are held in stock in Hinckley in order to supply the 22 UK and Irish distributors. The Hatz GB Dealer Network provides a comprehensive Parts and Service back-up throughout the British Isles.
The company aims to provide a professional back-up service to all Hatz engine users.
Our parent company Motorenfabrik Hatz GmbH was founded in 1880 by Mathias Hatz in one of the most picturesque parts of Germany, initially to repair steam locomotives. The company progressed rapidly and in the early part of this century they turned their attention to the manufacture of combustion engines.
Realising the efficiency of the diesel engine, in 1926 our company decided to develop our own engine. Since that date we have been one of the most successful and innovative diesel engine manufacturers in the world, receiving accolades from many countries for design and reliability.
Our subsidiary companies are established on all five continents with dealerships in almost every country in the world.
Our company is still owned by the Hatz family and our factory in the Bavarian village of Ruhstorf provides employment for one thousand people. We pride ourselves on our achievements, since 1965 we have manufactured 1.6 million engines, and we strive to maintain the degree of excellence which has made our company great.
