Perkins Logistics Centre To Open In Brazil

Perkins announced the planned opening of a new Regional Logistics Centre (RLC) in Curitiba, Brazil, to support original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and Perkins distributors in South and Central America.

Co-located with the Perkins engine manufacturing facility in Curitiba, the new RLC – expected to be operational in the first quarter of 2019 – will stock more than 3000 genuine Perkins parts and provide next day or two-day delivery for most of the region.

The Curitiba RLC is the third in a series of new facilities, adding to Perkins Global Distribution Centre in the UK, as part of a significant investment program the company is making to support both end-users of Perkins-powered equipment and Perkins distributors and dealers with locally-sourced spare parts located close to the customer. Other RLCs are located in Singapore supporting Asia Pacific, and Kentucky, supporting the U.S. and Canada. 

The Curitiba RLC will offer new products including service kits, overhaul kits and an expanded range of replacement engines available from stock. Co-location with the Curitiba engine manufacturing facility provides access to a Perkins team with local market knowledge dedicated to service, training and support in the region.

Perkins Brazilian distributor, MD Power of Sao Paulo, has been involved in the planning for the new Curitiba RLC and is positioned to utilize the new capabilities to enhance its service to regional customers.
