History of Perkins Diesel Engines
Perkins history all began with one innovating, engineer, Frank Perkins. Mr. Perkins came from a family of engineers and in 1932 he started Perkins with genius inventor Charles Chapmen. What separated Perkins diesel engines from competitors at the time was that Chapmen and Perkins manufactured high-speed diesel engines. Before them, diesel engines were slow, heavy and lacked performance. Chapmen believed that a high-speed diesel engine could challenge gasoline as the primary motive power. In fact, Perkins and Chapmen developed the world’s first high-speed diesel engine, leaving their competitors in the dust.
Frank Perkins' obsession with speed, productivity, and innovation still continue to drive Perkins diesel engines until this very day. Currently Perkins engine parts are globally distributed through 4,000 distribution centers all over the world.
Besides creating top-of-the-line diesel engines, Perkins prides itself on its community outreach. Around the globe, Perkins employees are actively playing a role in the communities in which they are based. On May 1, 2013 Perkins partnered with the charity Anna’s Hope, the leading brain tumor charity in the East of England. The company, which matches all employee donations, hopes to raise around 80,000 pounds to support the charity's aims.
