How we add value for customers in China

Chinese construction machines are typically required to perform for long hours in extreme conditions. By choosing Perkins as your engine supplier, you’ll get the local understanding and unrivalled support to ensure your machines run reliably, with the minimum of downtime.

China’s economy is the envy of the world, with growth over the past three decades averaging 10 percent. These strong economic conditions continue to provide enormous opportunities for the Chinese construction sector.

At Perkins, our support for the sector extends beyond our dependable range of engine solutions that give market-leading power density, low running costs and proven power. The unique way we support your business also supports your success.

Our unique service model, for example, gives Chinese customers the fast response they need, combined with unrivalled expertise in construction machines.

“Chinese customers receive exceptional support from our nationally recognised distributors Lei Shing Hong Machinery and Foshan Sime Darby Elco Power Equipment Ltd, both of whom are well-established engine specialists and machinery companies in their own right with a great heritage,” said Steve McLone, service and customer support manager Asia Pacific.

“With branches across the country, they provide expert parts and service support and have a deep understanding of both the engine technology and the conditions in which they’re operated. They ensure you always get the right engine and aftermarket solution to meet your specific needs.”

We’re stronger together

Perkins collaborative approach to working with Chinese Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) offers further benefits.

“We put a dedicated engineer on every project, who pulls together all the different engineering functions and specialists to meet the customers’ requirements. This means we can give Chinese OEMs the advice and support they need rapidly and conveniently,” said Steve.

In-country validation

Another big advantage for Chinese customers comes in the rigorous way Perkins tests and validates its engines.

“We send our engines out to real-life locations in China,” said Steve. “We know the country poses extremes of operating temperatures, extreme altitudes and variable fuel quality. So we ensure our engines are proven to work in those conditions.

"We know, too, that machines in China operate much longer hours than elsewhere in world. Which is why our products are designed to give fault-free power for tens of thousands of operating hours."
