Notice of Discontinuation; OWP Remanufactured Perkins Engines
To Whom it May Concern,
This notice is to inform our customers that effective August 19th, 2022, OWP will no longer be accepting orders for our in-house Remanufactured Perkins Engine product. This comes as a difficult finale, but due to softening product demand, unsatisfactory lead times resulting from supply chain shortages, core availability challenges, as well as increasing costs, this offering is no longer viable. On the positive side, we anticipate a strong supply of Service Replacement and New engines directly from Perkins in 2023 to continue in the life-cycle solutions offerings for all our customers needs.
Over the years OWP has adopted the latest technology for engine remanufacturing making us self-sufficient in all aspects of engine component machining and reclamation. We been in the engine remanufacturing business since the early 1980’s when we started remanufacturing Detroit Diesel engines, successfully producing over 20,000 units. Perkins engines were added to the line-up in the early 1990’s and have built an additional 15,000 engines during the production run for a total of over 35,000 engines reintroduced into the marketplace.
We thank all of our customers that have relied on OWP when giving second life to their equipment and making this a viable business for us over the past 40 years. We look forward to providing you with other engine solutions in the future.
Sr. Director, Distribution Business
