|Successor||Tianjin Lovol Engines Co., Ltd.|
Perkins Engines (Tianjin) Limited (PETL) was a joint venture of Perkins based in Tianjin, China formed in 1997. Perkins pulled the license in 2007, but Tianjin Perkins/Perkins (PETL) engines continued to be marketed. Perkins called for the liquidation of the joint venture in 2007 after discovering "irregularites". Engines have been marketed as Perkins Lovol, Perkins (Tianjin), Perkins (PETL) and other such brands. These engines were used in many Futian and Foton tractors.
PETL later changed its name to Tianjin Lovol Engines Co., Ltd. , known as Lovol Engines, and is a group company of Foton Lovol. They continue to build Perkins-based engines, many of which are used in Foton/Lovol tractors and combines.
