A focus on quality

 

Perkins Curitiba was opened in 2003 to produce the 1000 Series engine, and in just over six months had expanded to manufacture the 1100 Series as well. Then, it had just 50 employees – today a team five times as big has added the electronic variations of these engines to its production lines.

Brazil is one of the largest countries in the world in terms of territory, population and gross domestic product (GDP), with an economy expected to power ahead in the next few years.

Curitiba, capital of the country’s southern Paranà province, is ideally placed to service South American customers in the agriculture, construction, materials handling and electric power sectors. It’s a city of two million with the fifth largest economy in the country and excellent transport links throughout the continent.

Global standards with local understanding

Curitiba

At Curitiba, we manufacture the 1100 Series engines for the leading names in the agriculture, construction, materials handling and electric power sectors in Brazil and for export across South America and to other lesser regulated territories. We also manufacture the latest 7.01 litre 1106 range of mechanical and electronic engines, offering Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) the potential for more power from a smaller displacement.

Because we manufacture our engines locally, lead times are kept to a minimum. You get your new Perkins engine direct from the factory in the fastest possible time.

And quality is guaranteed. Engines are produced in line with the Caterpillar Production System (CPS) used in all Perkins manufacturing facilities, ensuring the same efficient processes, the same tested and validated components, and the same stringent quality controls are implemented at every facility.

Our Curitiba team is highly trained, and focused on what’s best for the customer - a local team, but part of a globally consistent manufacturing network.

“Close to celebrating 20 years of presence in this region, we continue to increase brand recognition by providing our customers with mechanical and electronic engines with the most advanced levels of technology and quality. In addition, developing the support network for Perkins products and services, as well as developing a world-class team of employees, following Perkins' global manufacturing standards.”

“We are proud to be able to see, increasingly, the consolidation of ties with equipment manufacturers that lead the agricultural, construction and electric energy sectors in Brazil.”
