Starting with its foundation in 1932 in England, Perkins Engines Company Limited have powered some of the world’s most-recognised machines in over 5,000 different types of applications. For over 90 years, Perkins has been a leading supplier of off-highway power solutions and has worked in close collaboration with customers to deliver the most effective power solution for their needs.
Latin America is an important part of Perkins heritage, starting with the company’s role in the acceleration of the agricultural mechanisation of the region by equipping imported machines with engines. To better serve the region, Perkins would build and manufacture these engines in Latin America with the first engine rolling of the line in 1959 at a factory in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Initially promoting its six-cylinder offering, Perkins range of engines expanded to include three and four cylinders, following local trends and its expertise in global technology solutions. The performance and reliability the engines provided quickly gained a positive reputation and other industries started to demand engines solutions. And Perkins was always close to each market to develop and create the best option for construction, industrial and electric power generation.
