Perkins announced plans to build a new manufacturing facility in China to produce small- and medium-size diesel engines. The manufacturing facility in Wuxi, Jiangsu province, would initially produce the Perkins 400 Series, a range of three- and four-cylinder, liquid-cooled, naturally aspirated, and turbocharged indirect-injection engines. The plant would be operated by the Perkins Shibaura joint venture. Phase one of production will be the 400 Series engine, expected to begin production in September 2008, and later phases will focus on the production of medium-size diesel engines, such as the Perkins 1100 Series. When fully operational, plant facilities in Wuxi will have capacity for the manufacture of more than 100,000 engines per year.
