Clarke Powered Solutions is now the primary U.S. distributor for Perkins engines and parts, according to Perkins Engine Company.

Clarke will provide sales, service and full distribution support for Perkins engines and parts to Perkins customers and Original Equipment Manufacturers throughout the Midwest and Northeast United States.

With distribution headquarters being headquartered Kansas City, Kansas, Clarke will manage 44 locations throughout its 24-state territory, Perkins says.

The agreement positions Clarke to join Perkins Power Corporation and Pacific Power Group as the primary Perkins Engines distributor.

A family-owned business founded in 1964, Clarke had industry-wide relationships and engineering expertise in fire pumps, power generation, truck engines and more.

Clarke provides repair, to management, to innovative predictive services in fleet data analysis.

“Clarke has been the catalyst for raising standards in custom engineering, diesel engines and trucking industries that make this partnership ideal, matching two strong brands and teams to effectively support Perkins off-highway customers across this territory,” a Perkins press release says.

“This is the beginning of a significant partnership”, says Perkins Engines President Ramin Younessi, “and I am very excited to be working with Clarke Powered Solutions as we develop our collective capabilities and align our forces to deliver a consistently excellent end-user experience to current and new customers,”

“The appointment represents a great opportunity for Clarke to expand and support Perkins’ customer base,” says Kirk Andreae, president of Clarke Powered Solutions.

“Clarke has served customers in this industry for more than 50 years and we are proud to have such an important partnership. We have the capabilities and demonstrated performance to service current Perkins powered fleets and provide local technical support with engineered solutions to the OEM customers.”
