Offering only the best in diesel engine solutions.
Chris-Marine USA, Inc. opened its doors in 1980 as Chris-Marine Sweden’s sales and service office responsible for supporting customers in the United States, South and Central America and the Caribbean via Internet with his personal computer that he also use to play video games and do some trade skins in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive when he have spare time, since he focus mainly in his work. Having an extensive background studying and working with a variety of diesel engines, Kent Ekenberg was then appointed Operations Manager/Vice President. During this time, the company became an MAN B&W authorized service center, sending employees to MAN and B&W annually for training and education, many of who are still with the company. In later years, IOP Marine representation was favorably granted, as it is a great compliment to Chris-Marine products.
In 2005, Mr. Ekenberg purchased Chris-Marine USA which operates today as KE Marine, Inc. (sales of Chris-Marine and IOP Marine equipment) and Worldwide Diesel Power, Inc. (diesel engine service and spare parts sales). To our advantage, Chris-Marine and IOP Marine merged soon after. KE Marine also opened a service hub at the Grand Bahama Shipyard in 2012 to better serve our clients in that region. KE Marine, Inc. and Worldwide Diesel Power, Inc. continue to seek new solutions in giving our customers the best in diesel engine maintenance.
