Perkins customers and end users in the United States can now log onto the new online parts store, perkins.com/shop to purchase genuine Perkins parts direct from the manufacturer.
Perkins customers can now buy genuine Perkins parts online after the company's online shop opened for business.
Targeted at machine owners, rental businesses, repair and engineering shops and mobile service and repair engineers, perkins.com/shop will allow U.S. customers of Perkins engines to buy genuine Perkins parts over the internet.
Perkins.com/shop will initially offer quick, easy access to the most commonly ordered Perkins parts including filters and service kits.
The site is easy to navigate, enabling customers to sort by engine series or product category, and search by part name or part number. Each part has a full description and image, allowing customers to be confident they are ordering the correct part, each and every time.
If a part isn't currently available to buy through perkins.com/shop, then end users will be able to register their interest in the product. This request will be passed on to the local Perkins distributor, who will follow up with the customer on their purchase and other service needs.
The online shop is supported by a new Perkins regional parts distribution center in Elizabethtown, Ky. Parts ordered through the shop will benefit from rapid shipping by air and road, depending on the customer's preference, direct from the Kentucky parts warehouse.
“We are making significant new investments in our aftermarket offering, giving end users quick access to genuine Perkins parts, up to date information on their engine and service and support from their local Perkins distributor,” said Aftermarket Director Michael Wright. “The launch of the shop is a key element of our strategy to enhance the service and support millions of Perkins end users already receive from our global network of trained Perkins distributors.
“We know that many of our customers want to be able to easily order competitively priced genuine Perkins parts online. Following today's launch of perkins.com/shop they will be able to obtain their genuine Perkins parts direct from the manufacturer.”
To support Perkins' U.S. customers, all parts orders placed on the new perkins.com/shop before July 31, 2017, will benefit from free road delivery.
