Easy Engineering: What are the main areas of activity of the company?

Dimax Group: We present a wide line of home-use and professional high-power generators. The assortment includes gasoline, LPG, diesel and inverter generators with power from 0.8 kW to 1 MW. On the basis of our own modern K&S engines we also produce garden equipment such as tillers and multifunctional machines, water pumps, wood chippers and log splitters. We are proud that our generators are used to equip emergency cars; our motor pumps are used at state fire departments; our tillers help private households in processing fields, covering all needs of agriculture. Könner & Söhnen machinery can be found across hole Europe in main distribution chanels such as DIY (Do It Yourself retail chains), Tradition Dealers and can be found online at the biggest marketplaces such as EMag, AMAZON, EBay and many others.

E.E: What’s the news for 2020 about new products?

Dimax Group: EMag Könner & Söhnen TM stands up to date with technological progress, constantly updating its product range and introducing new developments that allow our equipment to be even more reliable, more environmentally friendly and economical to use.

In 2020 we presented new line of inverter generators with power from 1.8 to 7.0 kW, which produce electric current with correct sine wave (suitable for stable operation of sensitive electronics, audio equipment and medical equipment). Generators have a multifunction displays, electronic choke control, overload and low oil protection. If you need to use the generator not at full power, you can select the economical mode of fuel consumption. Generators can be used for parallel connection with a help of Parallel Unit KS PU1 to obtain double power. Generators equipped with standard outlets and USB outputs for ease of use. You can choose models in a sound-absorbing casing, equipped with wheels and ergonomic handle for easy transportation or open frame models for cost saving. All generators comply with Euro-V standard.

Also, the top sellers of 2020 are models of generators which can operate both on gasoline and LPG (propane-butane). All necessary connections to LPG tank or bottle are included. Generators are equipped with built-in reducer that provides gas supply during engine operation, prevents gas leakage, as well as terminates gas supply when the generator is off. The hose is equipped with an additional reducer that is mounted on the LPG tank or bottle to increase the reliability of the gas line. It provides pressure reduction and eliminates the possibility of overloading the gas connection. So DUAL FUEL Line generators are convenient, more economical due to more cheap fuel and absolutely reliable. For example, model KS 7000E G, which can start directly with LPG, as well as all Dual Fuel models.

E.E: What are the ranges of traded products?

Dimax Group: In each category we offer full range of products to satisfy each demand. Customer can choose, for example, generator for any need – for camping or for country house, for small business or for state institutions, for home or professional use at constructions.

As well we support products with accessories such as protective covers, engine and gear oils, cord reels and socket adapters, transport kits, etc. We offer a wide assortment to customers and our qualified sales department managers can help to choose which generator will be more suitable for particular need – gasoline, dual fuel, diesel or inverter generator; presented in open frame or in a silent canopy.

It’s possible to choose same power generator but with different functions. For example, it can be 1-phase or 3 –phase generator, or 1 and 3 phase combined in one (generator with innovative Voltage Transfer Switch system), it’s possible to purchase gasoline generator with built-in ATS system (Automatic Transfer Switch) or you may need diesel generator with ability to connect additional ATS unit, which we also supply.  By the way, models with ATS system are extremely popular. This function allows generator to monitor power in the mains and automatically turn on in the case of power outage, and then automatically turn off when the power supply is restored. This function is indispensable in buildings with rigid temperature or light control.

E.E: At what stage is the market where you are currently active?

Dimax Group: By now we see growing interest in independent power sources. Though the global economy is stagnating, our DIY segment is developing. Customers become more demanding, but we are trying not only to satisfy, but exceed their expectations, offering innovative systems, fast delivery service, helpful videos showing how to operate and maintain machinery and necessary availability of products at any time.

E.E: What can you tell us about market trends?

Dimax Group: Now we can see that eco-friendly products become more and more popular.

We support this tendency too by producing Euro V engines, which meet the latest emission standards; offering machinery with electric engines; using LPG as fuel with less cost and less emissions of harmful substances into atmosphere. At the same time people want reliable products and we also meet that requirement. The quality control is extremely important, that’s why assembly process is conducted under constant control of German engineers, all items undergo multiple test at various stages of production and finally we mark each engine with serial number for best quality control. Having such high quality standards, Könner & Söhnen products already got honourable European awards in categories “High Quality”, ”Functionality”, „Ease of Use”, “Product of the Year”, „Expert’s Choice”.

E.E: What are the most innovative products marketed?

Dimax Group: Huge experience and our own engineering department helps us to introduce and implement the most modern technologies: EFI (electronic fuel injection), PVA (alternator that produces a cleaner wave), Turbo Mode (mode with an increased starting power up to 20%), EURO V (the most modern emissions standard), etc.

For example, Dimax group, as proficient producer of generators, was the first who presented such innovative product like generator with Voltage Transfer Switch system (VTS system), which allows to use generator in both 1-phase (230V) and 3-phase (400V) mode without any power loss. We offer gasoline and diesel generators with VTS system.  For example, gasoline model KS 10000E 1/3 shows power 7.5/8.0 kW in both modes. So now customer can purchase, maintain and store one generator instead of two separate machines.

E.E: What estimations do you have for 2020?
