Parker Hannifin Celebrates Milestone

August 21, 2012

In October, Parker Hannifin's ParkerStore network will open its 2,000th location. The store will be located near Lyon, France.

In 1993, Parker Hannifin developed what it calls its “Industrial Retail” approach, marrying the traditional trade counter with a more do-it-yourself retail environment. Today, ParkerStores has a global reach, as the number of ParkerStores has doubled since 2008 despite a turbulent global economy, the company says.
