COMMERCIAL ENQUIRIES about Paxman Diesel Engine Spares and Service

Please note this is not an official company website. It is an independent, non-profit venture with the aims of recording Paxman's history and making it available to a wide audience. Neither I nor the website trade in, or have any commercial links with businesses trading in, diesel engines or associated equipment, spares or service.

The former Paxman business was acquired by MAN B&W Diesel AG of Augsburg, Germany, in 2000 and is now part of MAN Energy Solutions UK Ltd. By the end of April 2021 the former Colchester Business Unit was effectively closed. Enquiries about spares and service support should be addressed to MAN Energy Solutions's UK headquarters at Stockport. Its contact details are displayed lower down this page.

Regulateurs Europa is now part of the Heinzmann Group and all commercial enquiries should be addressed direct to the Company using the Regulateurs Europa contact details at the foot of this page.

These 'Paxman History Pages' are compiled and maintained by Richard Carr who is pleased to receive queries, comments, suggestions, corrections, or contributions of additional material relating to the history of the Company and its products.
