The Hope Group Acquires
Sprague Fluid Connectors

Northborough, MA (08-24-2012) – Tony Cantone, President of The Hope Group, today announced that the company had acquired Sprague Fluid Connectors of Weymouth, MA, and with the acquisition of its seventh ParkerStore, The Hope Group of Massachusetts has become the dominant source in New England for authorized Parker components and systems. The company's website, TheParkerStore.com was updated today to represent all seven Parker Stores operated by The Hope Group.

In announcing the acquisition, Cantone said, "We are pleased to add the Weymouth MA location to our New England Parker Store family. The dedicated team of technicians and fabricators at our stores assures our customers of same day service for the repair of ruptured hydraulic hose assemblies and expert parts selection and assembly to meet critical mobile hydraulic and other industrial requirements," he added.

Motion and Control

The Hope Group was founded as a distributor of rubber products for consumers and small businesses during the early years of the depression. Today, it has become a dominant player in the motion and control business in New England, backed by the strength and international presence of the $13 billion company. Parker is best known for its aerospace and motion and control technologies, that are applied through its major core competencies in hydraulics, pneumatics, automation and instrumentation.

The seven stores each carry an inventory of 3,000 parts and are staffed by factory-trained specialists who can help customers identify and select the correct hydraulic hose and fitting for their needs. In addition, the stores serve as distribution and sales hub for The Hope Group's outside sales force, which consists of 20 experienced sales engineers with specialties in fluid connectors, fluid power, motion and control technologies and sealing solutions.

The Hope Group was founded in 1933 by the Rhoten family of Massachusetts. For the past 50 years it has been an authorized full-line Parker distributor, featuring hydraulic, pneumatic, automation, instrumentation, o-ring & sealing, and hose & fittings components and systems. From its 60,000 sq ft warehouse and manufacturing facility in Northborough MA, the company designs and builds custom machinery for the defense, semiconductor, marine, pulp & paper, mining, power generation, life sciences, and mobile hydraulics markets.
