ParkerStores feature a hose and fitting inventory with 3,000 parts in stock and a range of other Parker products from the hydraulics, automation, filtration, climate & industrial controls, and seal groups. In addition to product, ParkerStores provide technical expertise, product training, troubleshooting and alternate system solutions. The stores also offer a 24/7 emergency assistance service.
"A consistently profitable extension of our customer operations, ParkerStores have opened new markets and been a significant revenue driver for the company," said Jack Myslenski, executive vice president of sales, marketing and operations support. "We see continued opportunity to open more ParkerStores in the U.S. and even greater prospects worldwide."
Parker provides support staff specializing in retail trade, national promotions such as racing program sponsorships and trade show support, a global directory, point of purchase displays, sales literature, yellow pages advertising, and training.
"The independently owned stores are a growing part of Parker's worldwide network of 8,500 distributors," said Myslenski. "Despite a general decline in the traditional industrial distribution business, the ParkerStore network has grown at an annual rate of 23 percent.
"With our ParkerStores, we are able to meet the needs of customers we couldn't reach before. And the stores have also proved very popular with our distributors. Since we opened our first ParkerStore with Mega Fluidline Products, Inc. in Cleveland in 1993, 70 percent of our U.S. distributors have become store owners, and more than 40 percent operate in more than one location. The stores' total focus on superb customer service has earned us a high percentage of repeat customers and repeat store owners."
With annual sales of $6 billion, Parker Hannifin is a manufacturer of motion and control technologies and systems for a variety of commercial, mobile, industrial and aerospace markets. The company employs more than 46,000 people in 44 countries around the world.
