Silver Performance Award Presented to
The Hope Group Automation Sales Team

Northborough, MA (2-5-2016) - In recognition of having achieved the second highest sales growth among Parker distributors nationally, the Parker Fluid Controls Division made a presentation to the Automation sales team at The Hope Group of the Silver Performance Award, as part of its Full Circle Distributor program for Parker FY 2015.

“This recognition of our efforts to strengthen The Hope Group’s position as a premier supplier of fluid controls technology to the New England market is very gratifying,” said Bill Rodny, VP Automation. “We may have received the plaque that symbolizes this achievement, but it was an award built on the efforts of everyone at THG Corporation,” said Bill.

Making the presentation to the Automation team in Northborough on February 4, 2016, were four representatives from Parker. Sharon Chu, General Manager of the Parker Automation Group, made the formal presentation to Mark Ferland, President of The Hope Group. The other representatives from Parker were, Craig Chapman, Division Marketing Manager, Jason Salvato, Division Sales Manager, and Jeremy Haller, Territory Manager.

Also attending the award presentation ceremony, from The Hope Group, were Bob Tranfaglia, Automation sales engineer, Scott Miller, Automation sales engineer, and Jerry Lamothe, Director of Quality for THG Corporation.

In accepting the award, Mark Ferland pointed out that the cash prize that accompanied the award was being used to sponsor a pizza lunch for the entire THG Corporation workforce. All eight THG Corporation locations were feted to lunch to acknowledge that everyone had a role to play in the successful sales growth that earned this recognition from Parker.

“We have made a commitment to increase our presence as an Automation resource for the established and growing fluid controls marketplace here in New England,” said Ferland. “We have increased our investment in added personnel, expanded on-hand inventory, and targeted marketing outreach better penetrate this important growth opportunity for THG Corporation and The Hope Group, specifically,” he added.
