Get in touch with your local Perkins distributor

Almost 90 years ago, we were the first company to recognize the potential of diesel for the off-highway market. Since then, we’ve been one of the world’s leading suppliers of off-highway diesel engines. This long history means our engineers understand exactly how to design and manufacture outstanding diesel engines which will stand the test of time.

To keep them running well, we put as much thought into the parts we sell as in the initial engine design, and we work closely with our local distributors so their technicians are fully trained and benefit from our longstanding knowledge.
