Wherever your engine comes off the production line – from Peterborough to Hosur or Wuxi to Seguin – it will meet exactly the same high standards of performance, reliability and durability. Our quality won’t deviate, because we follow the same stringent processes and use the same quality components wherever we build your engine.
With manufacturing sites in China, India, North America, South America and the UK, Perkins is a truly global business.
Some Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) may believe that a Perkins engine produced in North America is superior to one tooled in Asia or assembled in South America. But it’s a misconception. Whichever manufacturing facility builds your engine, the same consistent global quality is 100 percent assured.
Here’s how we achieve it:
All our systems and processes are followed to the letter by technicians across our global network. So the quality message is clear. Our consistency is global – and it never deviates.
Our commitment to exceptional quality means our processes never stand still. We’re always looking to innovate and find new ways to improve them – and we do this on a global scale.
Through a global manufacturing council, which all our facilities are members of, we review ideas that teams have globally. If it’s good for all our sites, we’ll roll that improvement out across the globe. By doing so, we ensure we continue to raise the bar when it comes to quality.
“Some OEMs may think that engine quality depends on manufacturing location, but it’s a false perception. We combine global processes with local execution to ensure that every engine is built to the same specification and quality standards, and all perform with the same level of performance, reliability and durability.”
Ian Jolly, manufacturing engineering manager with responsibility for our global processes
