Parker celebrates past, looks to future
Parker Hannifin Corporation, the global leader in motion and control technologies, is celebrating the 100th anniversary of its founding on March 13, 1917, and has launched a centennial website at www.parker.com/centennial.
“This year we honor the past and the great achievements that have come before us, and celebrate the people, culture and values that have made Parker the company it is today,” said Tom Williams, chairman and chief executive officer. “Our remarkable team members are the foundation of Parker’s success, and they will continue to drive the company’s growth as we look ahead to a promising future over the next 100 years.”
The Parker Appliance Company, a manufacturer of pneumatic brake systems and leak-free fittings, was founded by visionary engineer Arthur L. Parker and developed in the early years with his business partner Carl Klamm in a small loft in Cleveland, Ohio.
