The power of collaboration

As one of the world’s leading providers of diesel engines we are passionate about delivering excellent products and services that exceed our customers’ expectations.

With an 88-year history and more than 21 million engines behind us, our customers are in an ideal position to take advantage of a heritage of engineering excellence, as well as exceptional reliability and lower noise levels across our comprehensive product range.

Working closely with our original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to provide the best power solutions

A commitment to collaboration defines the Perkins approach to doing business. We work alongside you at every step of the process—from initial design, through validation and production, to ongoing support in the field—to deliver power, service and productivity in exactly the way you want it.



A collaborative approach

Collaboration starts with a conversation. We listen to what you need from our products and take pride in being able to meet those needs exactly. We work with you to develop the engines that power your products—that build and improve the infrastructure society depends on. 


Design with purpose

With Perkins engines at work in more than 5,000 applications around the globe, there’s no question we know how to customise solutions for different requirements. We design for power, reliability and durability—and to meet your unique needs—every time.

Tested for the real world

Design matters, but the only way to ensure our engines live up to your expectations is to put them to the test. We go to great lengths with our engine validation – on test beds and as part of machine systems in real applications – to deliver a product that’s proven to work when you need it most.

Manufacturing quality

A global network of customers calls for a global network of manufacturing facilities—each held to the same rigorous process and quality standards. The Perkins team comes together to build the very best engines and deliver consistent power to you, wherever you are in the world. 

Every step of the way

From the first conversation about engine requirements, to parts and service support in the field, to data analytics that feed future product development, we’re a better team when we collaborate with you. We work to be your trusted engine provider at every stage of the journey. 

Giving you the flexibility to service your engines, your way

Wherever you are in the world, you’re always local to Perkins.

Local support from more than 3,500 outlets in 176 countries gives you access to over 40,000 fully guaranteed Perkins genuine parts.

We work closely with you to understand your challenges and requirements for parts, aftercare and maintenance so we can significantly reduce your down time – enabling you to maximise the return on your investment.

Product support excellence is a fundamental part of our brand value offering a quick, proactive response to our customers.
