More than 80 years ago, we were the first company to recognise the potential of diesel, and have maintained our position as one of the world’s leading suppliers of off-highway diesel and gas engines.
Our long-standing expertise is in developing and manufacturing engines,and the story of our game-changing and innovative products is studded with famous names, achievements and occasions.
Back in 1935, for instance, Perkins engines broke six world land speed records, with a top speed of 95 mph. And in 1953, we welcomed the Queen Mother to our 21st birthday celebrations. We have received honours and awards, and taken power to cities, hospitals and schools.
