Kanoo Machinery to promote Perkins’ prowess

February 2018

Kanoo Machinery, Perkins distributor for the Arabian Gulf, will be exhibiting alongside its principal at the Middle East Electricity exhibition, which will be held next month (March 6 to 8) in Dubai, UAE.

Perkins, one of the world’s leading providers of diesel and gas engines, is a key sponsor of the leading trade event for the power industry.

Kanoo Machinery – a member of YBA Kanoo, one of the largest family-owned multinationals in the Middle East – is Perkins distributor for the Arabian Gulf with responsibility for Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, UAE and Yemen. It is responsible for the distribution, after-market parts and product support for Perkins across the Gulf.

As an authorised Perkins district training centre, Kanoo Machinery provides training on Perkins engines to its distribution network, OEMs (original equipment manufacturers), OEM dealers, large fleet owners and end-users. It also provides quick resolutions for engine breakdowns through its regional workshop teams.

“While Perkins diesel engines are used globally in over 5,000 product applications, they are a market leader in the power generation sector and are a household name across the Middle East,” said a spokesman for Kanoo Machinery. “OEMs and customers alike are drawn to the Perkins brand not only because of its proven engineering excellence, coupled with quality and reliability, but also due to the consistent after-sales support they get from Kanoo Machinery.”    

To support the new generation of technologically advanced Perkins engines entering the market, Kanoo Machinery works with the regionwide Kanoo distributor facilities to ensure Perkins global parts and service support standards are delivered at each location across the Gulf.

Kanoo Machinery has an after-sales network of dedicated Perkins technicians that offer field service and workshop repairs in addition to product support. Multiple spare parts outlets in each territory improve parts availability and customer engine uptime. Its technicians have undergone rigorous Perkins-certified training to gain the technical knowledge, expertise and diagnostic skills needed to carry out all servicing and maintenance on Perkins engines, the spokesman added.

Kanoo Machinery provides genuine Perkins spare parts, stocking more than 5,000 spare parts and using a parts identification system to minimise customer machine downtime.
