Reliable and efficient power in the way your customers need it

With an 85-year history and 20 million engines behind Perkins, 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 entire range of products.

You can rely on our world class manufacturing capability and expertise to deliver engineering excellence. The huge range of options on offer, coupled with our proven core engine designs, will more than meet the specific needs of your product.

Our global brand is supported by the local knowledge of our distribution partners. This means we can deliver local solutions to global standards, putting you at the very heart of our business.  

Perkins customers demand – and deserve – the best engines at the best quality.

Working closely with our OEMs to provide ideal engine solutions

Our adaptations and innovations mean we can tailor-fit our engines to your machines, delivering the most suitable applications and providing the power you require. OEMs can use smaller, more fuel-efficient engine solutions, enabling them to downsize their machines by up to 20 percent with no loss of power.

With a dedicated team of Perkins applications engineers, supported by a global applications team, we can provide innovative power to suit your operations and your customers’ needs – and our experience and efficiency means we can cut as much as six months off your NPI lead times.

We’ve applied our products to over 800 different machines – so we know we can always provide a positive end-user experience.
