Providing motion and control components and systems solutions

The Hope Group was founded in 1933 by the Rhoten family of Massachusetts. Originally established to provide industrial rubber products for consumers and industry, the company expanded into fluid power products in 1960 through its affiliation as an authorized distributor for Parker Hannifin.

More recently the company established itself as a source for motion and control system solutions, incorporating its core competencies in hydraulics, pneumatics, fluid connectors, automation, filtration, electrical & electronic control systems, sealing solutions, and compressed air packages. As a full-line distributor for Parker, it has earned the designation as a Technology Center for Hydraulics, Pneumatics and Connector components and systems.

The Hope Group operates eight Parker Stores in five of the New England states. The company is headquartered in Northborough, MA, where it operates from a 60,000 square foot manufacturing and distribution center. With over $45 million in annual sales, 120 employees, and access to over $150 million in motion control inventory through its affiliation with DistraNet, the company is well positioned to build on its strength as a leading independent motion and control product and systems solutions provider.
