Perkins Engines Company Limited has entered into an agreement appointing BU Power Systems AG as an authorised Perkins distributor in Switzerland and Liechtenstein effective April 1, 2023.
Monday March 27, 2023
BU Power Systems is a long-serving Perkins authorised distributor in Germany, Italy and 14 other European countries. Over the last few years, BU Power Systems has worked closely with Minelli AG in Switzerland and Liechtenstein, to provide additional engines expertise. So, when Minelli AG decided to exit the Perkins business, BU Power Systems acquired the Perkins division of Minelli AG and established BU Power Systems AG.
"Through the course of an early and orderly succession plan, we have decided to place the Perkins division of Minelli AG in other hands," explains Reto Minelli, owner of Minelli AG.
With its headquarters in Pfäffikon, Switzerland, BU Power Systems AG is confident the work already undertaken with Perkins end users in the region will ensure continuity of service and support. The new distributor will also continue to benefit from the highly experienced team already established by Minelli AG, who have a long and established relationship with their Perkins-powered customers.
Franz Focks, CEO of the BU Power Group, comments: "With our many years of experience throughout Europe, we can guarantee a successful future for Perkins in Switzerland and Liechtenstein. The employees and the familiar contact personnel will remain and ensure a smooth transition.”
Jaz Gill, Vice President of global sales, marketing, service and parts at Perkins adds: “I’m very pleased our Perkins-powered customers in Switzerland and Liechtenstein will be able to benefit from the continuity of service and ongoing expertise from the Perkins distribution network.

This will continue under BU Power Systems AG, who under the leadership of the BU Power Group, will be able to quickly and effectively, give our customers the ongoing parts, service and support coverage they require.”
