Lister History…Lister Diesels Malaysia in the 1970s
Lister Petter is now owned and run by the Mason Family, all of whom are passionate about the brand, it’s history and what makes “a Lister”.
A brand that was originally founded, and still remains in Britain, yet is known worldwide. The Mason’s are always interested to hear of experiences and historic events relating to Lister Petter both in the UK and Overseas. The most recent story was sent in by a gentleman who was sent on a secondment from our old Dursley facility to Lister Petter Diesels in Malaysia. As Technical Manager he was responsible for the plants inception in 1971. Here they assembled 10,000 engines and gensets, ranging from LR1 to HRS6.
Below are just a few photos from the archive.
