Zeppelin SkySails Sales & Service

Since the end of 2008, SkySails has the Zeppelin Power Systems GmbH & Co. KG, a subsidiary of the venerable Zeppelin Group, as strategic partner at its side. The joint venture company Zeppelin SkySails Sales & Service GmbH & Co. KG handles worldwide servicing of SkySails propulsion. With the start of series production Zeppelin SkySails will also exclusively handle worldwide sales of SkySails propulsion.

By using Zeppelin Power Systems’ robust sales and service network, Zeppelin SkySails will ensure that all SkySails-Systems are maintained rapidly and reliably worldwide. 

Zeppelin has been a partner of Caterpillar, the world’s largest independent manufacturer of diesel engines, for over 50 years and ranks among the leading sales and service organizations for marine engines in the world. 

The Zeppelin Group

Zeppelin is a company rich in tradition whose name and origins go back to the great airship pioneer Ferdinand Count Zeppelin, who contributed the company he founded in 1908 to the Zeppelin Foundation that is headquartered in Friedrichshafen, Germany. The Zeppelin Group is still owned by the foundation to this day. Zeppelin Group has its headquarters in Garching near Munich and has been the exclusive sales and service partner of Caterpillar Inc. of Peoria, Illinois since 1954 – a partnership that has since expanded from Germany to numerous countries in Central and Eastern Europe. 

The Zeppelin Group employs some 6,500 people at 190 locations around the world and is projected to post revenues of 2.5 billion euros in 2008. The Zeppelin Group’s subsidiary Zeppelin Power Systems GmbH & Co. KG is responsible for the sales and service of MaK and Caterpillar marine and other engines.
