Yanmar is a Japanese company that designs and manufactures diesel engines, including diesel generators. In the 1930s, in the early days of a diesel engine that was becoming reliable and effective, Yanmar was the first to develop a compact diesel engine. This led to increased opportunities and situations where diesel engines could be put to use, including in marine vessels and, eventually, the modern, portable generator. Nowadays, the company has reached global success and has dealers and contacts everywhere, like our very own Yanmar Generators in Australia.
