Lister Petter Global Distribution

Following the announcement that the UK is to leave the EU, Lister Petter confirmed early this morning that the company, an iconic British brand with a huge international customer base, is pressing ahead with its expansion plans. Ben Whitmarsh, Managing Partner stated, “Our plans for investment in further modernising our factory and production facility and spending more on R&D and new product development remain core to our plans for the future”.  Mr Whitmarsh went on to say, “Many of our customers are seeing massive improvements in lead times and availability of engines and gensets and this, combined with an improvement in the exchange rate, means Lister Petter engines are available to more competitive market sectors, including Telecoms”.

Lister Petter was formed over 140 years ago and has continued to build on its legacy by always remaining focussed on the future.  With world-wide sales of its engines and generators continuing to expand, supported by a total commitment to customer service and support, Lister Petter is well placed to take advantage of the UK’s renewed dedication to international trade.
