DISTRIBUTION OF Perkins engines in Great Britain will be carried out exclusively by Diperk UK from now on, a specialist division set up by Caterpillar dealer Finning.

The new operation is to be based in Peterborough and supported by a network of seven regional branches.

According to Diperk, customers will benefit from an enhanced six-day-a-week parts service and a new customer support centre where parts can be ordered and technical support accessed.
