What better place to invest in Asia than one of India’s fastest growing cities? Aurangabad has been identified as one of the cities in the ‘Smart City’ initiative and is strategically located within the Delhi-Mumbai industrial corridor. As such it offers a myriad of resources, suppliers, skills and transport links to India and the Asia-Pacific region.
It is for these very compelling reasons that Perkins decided to build a dedicated manufacturing facility from the ground up, an investment of more than $150 million.
Our new state-of-the-art production facility has been built to manufacture and supply the complete Perkins® 4000 Series engine range for the power generation market, from 750 to 2500 kVA. The facility has the capacity to produce 3,000 engines per annum, with potential to expand to 5,000 engines as demand for the product grows.
By manufacturing closer to our Asian customers, and using our world-class supply base, we provide customers with the engine they need, tailored to their specific requirements. Equipment powered by Perkins Aurangabad built engines currently generate reliable power solutions for hospitals, airports, universities, real estate, data centres and large manufacturing industries.
Engines are produced using the Caterpillar Production System (CPS) established in all Perkins manufacturing operations, ensuring the same efficient processes and stringent quality controls are implemented at every global facility. Production processes feature state-of-the-art computerised and robotic technology for machining, assembly, test and paint.
As with all Perkins products, the engines manufactured in Aurangabad will benefit from the support of our renowned service, and parts network.
“The Aurangabad facility puts Perkins in a prime position to deliver on its promise - to be the engine of choice for power generation. ”
