KMM Maryville has become the primary General Purpose Engine production facility for Kawasaki. Our premium quality engines can be found in lawn and garden equipment produced by manufacturers across the industry.
In the late 1980’s, continuing with the “build it where you sell it” idea, Kawasaki purchased a vacant building located in Maryville, Missouri. Counting on the strong Midwestern work ethic, Kawasaki quickly began production of an FC150V engine in 1989, used on walk-behind lawnmowers. This marked the beginning of Kawasaki’s imprint on the General Purpose Engines and the Lawn and Garden Industry.
We now produce engines ranging from 13 horsepower to 37 horsepower. Our building and workforce has significantly grown as a result of our customer demands.
