Barrus to distribute Genmark specialist truck mounted genset range

Published on: 11/06/2019


Barrus announces a new distribution partnership with Genmark to distribute and represent their flexible genset solutions in the UK and Ireland.

Genmark based in Holland, manufacture an innovative range of gensets for the commercial truck refrigeration market providing mobile power where no fixed electricity supply exists. There are four different models available depending on the mounting requirement; fixed chassis, flexible chassis, truck mounted or directly onto the refrigerated container.

Genmark Gensets are powered by a Yanmar diesel engine, the 4TNV88, which is specially designed for the Genmark units. With a 1000 hour extended running facility, the Yanmar engine is ideal for trailer and vehicle applications. “As we are the UK distributors for Yanmar diesel engines in the UK, the addition of the Genmark product into our portfolio is an excellent fit with our ability to not only sell the product but also to provide full technical service and support,” commented John Day, General Manager of the Industrial Division at Barrus. “This new partnership takes us into a new area of business and presents the opportunity to continue to grow our Industrial Division,” John concluded.

Jim Vodegel, Managing Director at Genmark commented, “Barrus is a company that has been around for over 100 years, and the cooperation between Barrus and Yanmar is well-established. The extensive experience that Barrus has with Yanmar engines and their dealer network are the reasons why we chose to partner with Barrus. John Day and his colleagues from the Industrial Division are professionals with years of experience, and I am proud to be able to work with them. This step puts us on the right track to take the sales and service in the UK and Ireland to a higher level.”

The Genmark Undermount UM5 Genset will be on display on the Barrus stand, DC7, at Plantworx. Designed for fixed chassis and usually positioned in the middle of the chassis, the UM5 has the highest ground clearance in the field with up to 40cm.
