COMMERCIAL ENQUIRIES about Paxman engines, Spares, Service, and Overhauls

Please note this is not an official Paxman 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 is now part of MAN Energy Solutions UK Ltd and all commercial enquiries should be addressed direct to the Company. Contact details of its Colchester business unit (formerly the Paxman business) can be found 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.
