parker-distributor-logo Our Parker Partnership
Goes Back Over 55 Years

For over 55 years, The Hope Group has been associated with Parker Hannifin, the world's leading diversified manufacturer of motion and control technologies and systems. The new Parker Distributor logo was introduced recently and was designed to strengthen the relationship between the parent company and the authorized distributorships. Fully 80 percent of the domestic revenue for Parker flows through its Distributor network. As a $13 billion publicly-held corporation, residing as the 248th largest corporation on the New York Stock Exchange, Parker has an expectation that its Distributors would be proud of the association.


hope-group-headquarters-northborough Our Headquarters Office
is in Northborough, MA

The headquarters of The
Hope Group is located in Northborough MA, at the intersection of I-495 and I-290, only a few miles north of the Massachusetts Turnpike, exit 11. From this convenient location, built to meet its specific design requirements in 1985, the company extends its reach through its eight branch locations in Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut.


The-Hope-Group-Logo
Our Triangle Logo Design
Represented 3 Companies

The corporate logo was developed in conjunction with a name change and the relocation to Central Massachusetts about 25 years ago. The triangle design reflected on the three divisions operating at the time, which included The Hope Group, Hope Air Systems and Sorensen Governor. Today, the Hope Air and Sorensen divisions are independent companies, having formed their own LLC's, and all three companies are subsidiaries of THG Corporation. The logo continues to reflect the wide range of products, systems and engineered solutions provided by The Hope Group.
