About the First of its Type “L35MC”
In 1982, Makita Corporation completed the "Makita-Mitsui-B&W 6L35MC," which was the first of its type. "First of its type" here means that based on blueprints provided by B&W, this engine's form became the first commercial product of its type in the world. In 1973, Makita Corporation entered into a technical assistance agreement with Mitsui Engineering & Shipbuilding Co., Ltd., marking a major turning point. In 1976, Makita Corporation completed the "Mitsui-B&W 9K45GF" working in cooperation with Mitsui Engineering & Shipbuilding. Based on that experience, we were able to build, through collective efforts, the "Makita-Mitsui-B&W 6L35MC."
The L35MC holds a worldwide top share among engines of its class, while the model has been changed over the years to meet the needs of the market. During a period of over 30 years, along with this long-selling engine, Makita Corporation has found fresh opportunities in moving from a focus on being a coastal shipping-centric four-stroke diesel engine manufacturer to a company with global partners that produces two-stroke diesel engines.
