Parker Hannifin Tops Survey of Design Engineers as Worldwide Leader in Fluid Power Technologies
CLEVELAND, June 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Parker Hannifin Corporation (NYSE: PH) was recognized in a worldwide survey of product design engineers as the global leader in fluid power technologies. Parker is the leading supplier of a full range of motion and control technologies, including fluid power.
The latest report came in an annual survey of design engineers by Design
News and Global Design News. Design News circulates in the U.S., while Global
Design News reaches engineers in design centers outside the United States.
The survey asked 6,000 readers of the magazines to rank companies in
several product categories by best technology, most competitive pricing and
best customer services, then to pick an overall industry leader. It was the
third straight year that Parker was rated number one in the fluid power
category in the magazines' Best Global Suppliers survey.
Parker's fluid technologies provide precision-engineered solutions for a
wide range of applications in every field of human endeavor, from undersea
exploration to outer space. Parker products include pumps, motors, valves,
cylinders, hoses, connectors, seals and filters as well as hydraulic,
pneumatic, electric and wireless actuators and controls. These components may
be as tiny as the miniature pneumatic valves used in the latest portable
dialysis machines or as large as the hydraulic motors that propel gigantic
Parker fluid technologies make possible life-saving products like a new
single-operator emergency rescue device called Sabre-Tool. Manufactured by
the Phil-Mar Company, Sabre-Tool relies on Parker components for its
operability at remote or difficult access accident scenes where it is used to
extricate crash victims from their vehicles. More maneuverable than heavier,
truck-mounted scissors systems, Sabre-Tool weighs just 35 lbs. including its
20-lb. backpack power unit.
With annual sales of $6 billion, Parker Hannifin is the world's leading
diversified manufacturer of motion and control technologies and systems. The
company employs 45,000 people in 46 countries around the world. For more
