In 1932, the entrepreneurial businessman and engineer, Frank Perkins, founded his company F Perkins Ltd. Operating from a tiny workshop in Peterborough, UK, he employed just seven people and produced his first diesel engine within a few months. Currently three manufacturing sites in the UK and licensees around the world produce over 300,000 engines per year, supported by a huge global distribution network.
Perkins Engines Company Limited (www.perkins.com) , headquartered in Peterborough, UK, with North American headquarters in Mossville, Ill., is a supplier of off-highway diesel and gas engines in the 5-horsepower-to-2,600-horsepower market. Perkins was acquired by Caterpillar in 1999. Its engines are branded and marketed separately. Perkins' key strength is its ability to tailor engines precisely to meet customers' requirements with 21,000 different specifications. Over 1,000 major international OEMs in the construction, agricultural, power generation, materials handling, and defense markets choose Perkins to provide their power.
