Visitors from 36 countries at METS 2016

Perkins saw an increase in visitors to their stand at the Marine Equipment Trade Show, METS, held in Amsterdam in November.

Perkins welcomed distributors, dealers, and customers to speak with the team from Wimborne, UK. On display, visitors could see the M92B and the 400 packager series as well as speaking with the knowledgeable team to understand the developments within Perkins and the complete product range. 

In addition to handling a number of positive enquiries, of the engines on display, the 1104 Series M92B propulsion engine caught the attention of a customer of Kemper en Van Twist, the Perkins appointed distributor in the Netherlands. The M92B is ideal for marine applications. It is a 4.4 litre propulsion engine with 64 kW at 2400 rpm, it delivers improved performance with reduced operating costs in an efficient package. The engine has remained in Holland since the show and is now with the customer.

We took a slightly different approach to the stand this year, at previous editions of METS, we have filled the stand with product, this year we took a more minimalist approach, carefully selecting some engines which have most recently won contracts. We then created a meeting area for much of the stand. This approach worked well and something which we are looking to further develop in our plans for 2017.
Jonathan Wellstead, marine sales manager for Perkins
