Parker Hannifin combined its Motion & Control and Fluid Connectors operations in Canada into one division, the Parker Canada Division. As one united division, the alignment creates both product and technology synergies that will now be easier to capitalize on, which will result in better value and improved service for the customer.

Previously, he was general manager of the Fluid Connectors Canada Division.
“This consolidated focus will expedite our growth in Canada by efficiently leveraging the value of Parker within our markets, and at the same time providing an aligned concentration to each of our customers, and potential customers,” commented Steve Klepack, vice-president of operations for Parker’s fluid connector group.
