Kromhout

From Graces Guide

Kromhout Motoren Fabriek of Amsterdam was a Dutch company known for diesel engines for industrial, marine, vehicle and railway use, in addition to producing trucks and buses.

In 1932 they took out a licence to produce Gardner diesel engines.

In 1939 they took out a licence from Armstrong Siddeley to produce aero engines.

1958 Kromhout stopped building trucks and buses. Motorcycles were still being made.

1966 Kromhout became part of Stork, and engine production was transferred to a factory in Zwolle.

The factory in Zwolle was taken over by Wärtsilä in 1989.
