O-Ring Engineering Seminar Planned For THG Corporation Open House

Northborough, MA (06-03-2008) – According to Ron Cook, Sealing Unit Manager for The Hope Group, an intensive two-hour O-Ring Sealing training seminar will be offered by Parker O-Ring Division technicians during the upcoming THG Corporation Open House. As one of a dozen different seminars and workshops, the session will focus on material selection, gland and hardware design, application specific criteria and guidance in the best use of the Parker O-Ring handbook and Design Software.

During the Open House, scheduled for October 8 & 9, 2008, specialists from the Parker O-Ring division in Lexington, KY, will provide technical information for all aspects of o-ring sealing. Each attendee will receive the new Parker O-Ring handbook, the Parker material selection guide and the Parker design software CD. The o-ring seminar has proved in the past to be among the best attended and well-received workshops at The Hope Group training center in Northborough, MA.

Ron Cook said, "It's been our experience that current customers and others who are seeking the latest technology for sealing problems have found the expertise and depth of knowledge among the Parker technicians unmatched in the industry. They have seen it all and often have innovative approaches to complicated sealing problems," he added.

As reported on its website, The Hope Group was named a Top Growth Seal Distributor for Parker Hannifin for fiscal year 2007. The Hope Group emerged as a Top Growth leader for the Northeast Region with over $300,000 in sales growth, topping the performance of over a dozen other regional distributors. "We were pleased to be honored for this achievement and we look forward to continued growth in our o-ring and seal market," said Cook.
