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.”
Manufacturing has changed. Computers and automation make factories cleaner, safer, and more efficient, and guarantee consistent high quality. That’s good news for the planet, for employees, and most of all for the customer.
Perkins is leading the way in this new world of safe, sustainable, automated and computerised manufacturing.
A safe, environmentally responsible manufacturing facility is also an efficient and profitable facility. Today, regular monitoring ensures the highest standards for the health and safety for our employees, the environmental sustainability of our manufacturing processes and the quality of our products.Learn more
Modern technology has revolutionized manufacturing. In controlling and monitoring energy use, in making our processes safer and more efficient, and in enabling us to develop new and efficient ways of working, new computerised technology has created a leaner, fitter, and more profitable environment.
Manufacturing has changed from the old inefficient, labour-intensive industry of the past totoday’s highly computerised cleaner and safer operation. Perkins is in the forefront of the change. Wherever possible, machines, robots and computers monitor, control and operate our production processes.Learn more
