Sectors we serve


More than 5,000 different applications are powered by Perkins engines. We help customers build roads and homes and we provide engines for both standby and prime electricity generation. Our industrial engines are powering the most complex of applications.

Whether on land or on water, our engines are meeting the needs of Perkins customers. We supply engines for construction machines, material handling applications and for agricultural, forest, and lawn and garden uses. We have diesel and gas engines that generate both prime and standby electricity for hotels, hospitals and construction sites and larger schemes to power domestic and business customers. Our gas engines can also provide heat for heating facilities or operations or to drive absorption chillers for cooling. On water, we power vessels from small pleasure craft to large fishing boats both for propulsion and auxiliary electricity generation.

Perkins customers have come to rely on the diverse range and high quality of our products. We supply engines – both diesel and gas powered – for a wide range of applications, both terrestrial and marine



Combining the proven reliability and performance of our engines with fast and responsive customer support, we help you minimise costs and maximise productivity and agricultural yield. A world-leading off-highway engine specialist, Perkins first began working with farming equipment manufacturers in the 1930s. Since then, our engines have been used in over 5,000 different machine applications, including some 300 tractor models.

In terms of construction machines, which are known to work their engines hard, we power excavators, wheel loaders, backhoe loaders, telehandlers, skidsteer loaders, dumpers, dozers, rock drills, rock crushers, screeners and pavers.

From mini-excavators operating in domestic gardens to 40-tonne excavators deployed on some of the world’s biggest construction and mining operations you’ll find Perkins engines at the heart of the machines.

Engineered using ‘real world’ data and insights from customers, our engines work in harmony with the machine to the exact requirement of the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM), which for you – the end user – means better performance and improved fuel consumption.
