Trendsetting Tradition

Driven by the idea of being able to produce energy wherever it is needed, automobile inventor and pioneer Carl Benz developed the world’s first stationary gas engine in 1880. In 1871, Benz founded “Mechanische Werkstätten Mannheim“, paving the way for the innovative further development and production of gas gensets. The company’s history of 150 years is still noticeable on the Mannheim premises: The product name “MWM”, which goes back to its inventor Carl Benz and now belongs to the Caterpillar Group, has become a globally leading brand alongside “Cat”. The ongoing further development and numerous patents make the engines from Mannheim unique in their area.
