New distributor for YANMAR Industrial Engines in Egypt

YANMAR Europe (YEU) is very pleased to announce the agreement with Mohammed Ahmed Daoud for Engineering and Industrial Investment (Daoud Group) for the distributorship of industrial engines in Egypt.  

Daoud Group is the first Distributor established by YEU after becoming officially responsible of MEA territory within the YANMAR Group in January 2018. “The new appointment coming so quickly shows how seriously we are taking on the new area responsibility here at YEU. We are working simultaneously on different markets to put in place a very strong network in the near future. This is only the beginning of a wider strategy”, says Mr. Emilio Tognetti, Business Development Manager MEA at YEU.  

Daoud Group

Founded in 1939 and with about 1,200 employees, Daoud Group has long experience in the industrial engine market. The Group has three manufacturing facilities, fifteen showrooms and four branch offices across Egypt. Besides their local assembly of electric motors and water pumps, they have had a very strong position as a supplier of industrial engines for many decades. Since the mid-eighties, they have been marketing and selling diesel engines and have been active in the assembly of generating sets.  

“As one of the leading assemblers of diesel gensets and pumps, we know by experience that YANMAR is one of the best engine brands in the world. We are delighted to be YANMAR’s distributor in Egypt and we will use our entire network in Egypt to promote YANMAR products. At the same time, we will rely on YANMAR engines to be the prime force behind our own production of diesel generating sets and pumps sets. We are looking forward to successfully promoting YANMAR products in the Egyptian market and providing excellent technical support to our customers in sales & after sales services”, says Mr. Ali Farghali, Managing Director at Daoud Group.  

New business opportunities for YANMAR Industrial Engines

YANMAR has been active in Egypt for many years in the marine sector. Now, the company will further strengthen its position in this country with a dedicated distributor for the industrial engine sector. “We are very pleased with the distributorship of Daoud Group as a very experienced and energetic partner for YANMAR industrial engines in Egypt. Egypt is Africa’s second largest economy with a steady GDP growth of over 4% and huge development projects for the country led by the Government. We look forward to working with Daoud Group as a strong and knowledgeable partner for YANMAR’s industrial engine portfolio in Egypt”, continues Mr. Emilio Tognetti.    


With beginnings in Osaka, Japan in 1912, YANMAR was the first ever to succeed in making a compact diesel engine of a practical size in 1933. Moving on, with industrial diesel engines as the cornerstone of the enterprise, YANMAR has continued to expand its product range, services, and expertise to deliver total solutions as an industrial equipment manufacturer. As a provider of small and large engines, agricultural machinery and facilities, construction equipment, energy systems, marine, machine tools, and components — YANMAR’s global business operations span seven domains.  

On land, at sea, and in the city, YANMAR’s Mission of “providing sustainable solutions focused on the challenges customers face, in food production and harnessing power, thereby enriching people’s lives for all our tomorrows,” stands testament to YANMAR’s determination to providing us with “A Sustainable Future.” For more information, visit us at https://www.yanmar.com/eu/About-Us/
