To help increase business and provide even better service for its customers, Laborde Products has been chosen as a Steyr Motors distributor. The company will offer sales, service and support throughout Alabama, Arkansas, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas and Wisconsin. Laborde will also offer dealer support along the Eastern seaboard of Mexico, from the Texas border to Cancun.

Steyr Motors M1 Monoblock engines are known for the lowest weight in class at less than 1.2 kg/hp and the highest power density, up to 92 hp/ltr. Steyr also offers unrivalled compact dimensions and the lowest fuel and oil consumption in 2-, 4- and 6-cylinder configurations.

“We hope to expand both our businesses with this relationship,” said Rick Granger, Laborde dealer development manager. “In addition to supporting the current marine market, we also hope to explore new commercial markets for Steyr marine engines.”

Laborde's technicians have already started their training with a three-day class covering the study of all Steyr engine systems for the MO and SE series. Topics covered included basic engine and propulsion system selection, engine setup, monitoring and trouble-shooting, Steyr diagnostic tool 1 and 2, familiarization of exclusive Steyr options and mechanical setup and maintenance.

Laborde Products provides diesel engines, diesel-powered equipment, service and support to meet the needs of the marine and industrial markets. As an engine distributor, the company provides approximately one-third of the United States as well as the U.S. Gulf Coast with both marine and industrial engines.
