Our Parker Stores

The Hope Group operates nine 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 $46 million in annual sales, 130 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.

Why "The Hope Group" Name?

Although the company was incorporated as the Fitchburg Rubber Company in 1933, the original company had actually started prior to the turn of the century in Providence, RI, which was known as the City of Hope. The name Hope Rubber Company was adopted after World War II and has carried forward ever since, including its most recent name change to The Hope Group. The Hope Group has grown successfully over the past few decades through a combination of market penetration and acquisition of regionally significant companies. The Hope Group acquired The Leen Company, Bosworth Fluid Connectors and Webster Engineering as part of its group. Those acquisitions helped The Hope Group expand to its current nine locations in five New England states.

Corporate headquarters moved to Northborough, MA, in 1985, where it built a modern, 60,000 square foot manufacturing and distribution center to support its operations throughout New England. Together, with its other nine locations, The Hope Group has over 100,000 square feet of warehousing, fabrication and administration facilities to complement its manufacturing capacity.
