Founded in 1966, SDMO Industries is today the 3rd biggest player worldwide in the generating set market. Established in Brest, France, where it is still based, SDMO has three plants extending over more than 31,000 m² excluding logistics. SDMO designs, manufactures and installs generating sets from 1 to 3300 kVA for its standard range of products, thanks to its high-performance production plant and Research & Development unit. In addition, SDMO puts its engineering expertise into practise by designing tailor-made power plants and offers additional services with high added value: training, after-sales service, spare parts.

Whatever the power needed or the purpose of the generating set, a commitment to quality is guaranteed by an ISO 9001 certification, ensuring on-time delivery and high-performance for all products. This technological expertise combined with high-tech manufacturing procedures give SDMO the necessary skills to master the design phase of all products, including those intended for sensitive industries.

The company is continually strengthening its leading position through its solid structure as an international group. Through the extensive web it has spun, SDMO is able to penetrate new markets and ensure its continuing development.

SDMO’s research and development unit is made up of three separate areas that operate interdependently: the design offices, the prototypes department and the product engineering department.


At the request of the Marketing department, the design offices develop products inspired by market trends. The job of testing is passed on to the prototypes department, which produces the generating set and performs all the necessary tests on it, at its laboratory. Following the tests, a deliverable is sent to the department that initiated the request. If the findings of the deliverable fulfil its expectations, the product engineering department takes the baton and prepares the genset to enter production. It makes the relevant decisions to ensure that the conditions of production reflect the initial prototype, with the best quality/cost ratio.

Today SDMO is built upon:

– a distribution network present in over 180 countries.

– 8 subsidiaries (Zweibrucken (Germany), Buenos Aires (Argentina), Schoten (Belgium), Sao Paulo (Brazil), Barcelona (Spain), Miami (USA), London (UK), Lagos (Nigeria)).

– 5 representative offices (Johannesburg, Algiers, Dubai, Cairo, Moscow).

– 4 storage platforms (Miami, Le Havre, Lomé, Dubai).

– In France (links to map of sites in France), 7 sales offices operate on a daily basis under the responsibility of 3 regional offices. This proximity, together with a strong commitment towards service, ensures rapid reactivity whatever your location.


The Portable Power products include portable and residential generating sets, welding sets and water pumps. They are aimed at two main groups of users: consumers and professionals
