Perkins will once more be exhibiting at the Beijing International Construction Machinery Exhibition and Seminar (BICES), which opens on September 20. An important event in the Chinese construction industry calendar, BICES is an ideal opportunity for Perkins to underline its commitment to the Chinese construction market by introducing new products alongside its extensive aftermarket offering and advanced research and development capabilities.
Perkins returns to BICES this year to showcase the company’s new global product portfolio, emphasise its global standards and build on relationships with Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs).
Dan Bentley, Asia Pacific sales and distribution director, said: “BICES 2017 gives us an opportunity to demonstrate Perkins continued commitment to China and our leadership in its important construction machinery sector.”
The 14th biannual BICES opens for four days on September 20 at the New Beijing International Exhibition Centre. Organisers expect it to top the successful 2015 show which featured 1,040 exhibitors from 26 countries and regions, and 106,000 visitors, 65 percent of them from Asia and 18 percent from Europe.
Dan said: “As well as rolling out our global product portfolio at the show, we will be highlighting our research and development (R&D) capability, particularly our experience working with OEMs to develop machines to meet the new China Stage IV emission standards in 2019.”
Engines on display on Perkins Stand E1-201 will include the successful Perkins® Syncro 2.2 litre, 4 cylinder model. It features top performance, low operating costs and a compact package for a variety of off-highway applications.
Joining it is the Perkins Syncro 3.6 litre, 4 cylinder model which will be shown in China Stage IV configuration. The 3.6 litre is designed for reliability and easy service access, and is available with a range of installation options to minimise the size of a machine’s engine bay.
Also on display will be two 6 cylinder engines, the 1206F-E70TTA and the 2806J-E18TA. The 2806J is the largest of a platform of 9-18 litre engines that completes the market-leading Perkins range of industrial engines which covers 8.2-597 kW (11-800 hp).
“BICES 2017 gives us an opportunity to demonstrate Perkins continued commitment to China and our leadership in its important construction machinery sector.”
Perkins will also have a 404D-22 rated long engine on display to promote Perkins comprehensive range of remanufactured and replacement engine solutions which focus on helping customers maximise value across the entire machine lifecycle.
Aftermarket offers including Perkins® Engine Oil, Perkins genuine parts and EP Service Kits will also feature on the stand. Visitors will see a Perkins oil drum and a display of genuine filter parts.
Michael Wright, general manager Aftermarket, said: “BICES gives us the opportunity to talk to OEMs and decision-makers about the importance of genuine parts and service, and to introduce them to the Perkins Aftermarket distributor network.
“The Chinese and Asian construction sector is an important market and this show is the perfect place to promote our filter and heritage parts campaigns, the benefits of our PPP extended warranty scheme and the savings to be made with our replacement engine programme.”
