DEUTZ engines have played an important role in the mechanization and development of the Americas, since 1876. The first DEUTZ engines sold in the United States were marketed by Schleicher, Schumm & Co., in Philadelphia. This company was succeeded in 1894 by the Otto Gas Engine Works, also located in Philadelphia.

The DEUTZ engines were re-introduced to the North American market in 1951 by Diesel Energy Corporation, which later became a DEUTZ subsidiary in 1955, and its name was changed to DEUTZ Corporation in 1974.

DEUTZ Corporation, a subsidiary of DEUTZ AG, is a sales, product support, parts, training, and application engineering center for the Americas, supporting the DEUTZ product range of 30 – 700 hp diesel and natural gas engines.

Headquartered in Norcross Georgia, a suburb of Atlanta, the organization employs over 175 people. In addition, DEUTZ Corporation operates a remanufacturing production facility (Xchange program), in Pendergrass, Georgia.
