Perkins has officially opened its new regional logistics center (RLC) in Curitiba, Brazil, to support original equipment manufacturers and Perkins distributors in South America. Located on the same campus as the Perkins engine manufacturing facility, the new RLC is stocked with more than 3,000 genuine Perkins parts, which can be delivered next day or by two-day delivery to most of the region.  

Perkins Brazilian distributor MD Power was the first customer to receive their parts order from the RLC. Designed to serve local customers, any part ordered in South America at least three times over the past three years will be held in the Curitiba RLC, in addition to parts stocked to support new engine ranges being sold into the region. 

“The Curitiba RLC allows Perkins customers in South America to enjoy class-leading levels of parts availability,” Nick Morgan, Perkins aftermarket supply chain and operations manager said. “Importantly, we’re also committed to delivering the right products at the right price across the entire customer experience life cycle.” 

As well as stocking individual parts, the 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 an experienced Perkins team with local industry knowledge to continue the high levels of Perkins dedicated service, training and support in the region.     

“This investment in our RLC clearly demonstrates our commitment to serving our customers in South America with genuine parts and service, reduced downtime and total cost of ownership,” Rafael Souza, Perkins regional marketing manager said.
