New England Parker Stores Announce Plan to Host Parker Tech Tour Truck

Northborough, MA (11-20-2010) – Phil Lund, Vice-President of The Hope Group, today announced that the Parker Tech Tour truck will visit The Hope Group and The Leen Company again next spring. According to Lund, some of the stops for the Parker Tech Tour truck will include one or more of the six ParkerStores operated by The Hope Group in New England.

"The Parker Tech Tour brings innovative products, hands-on demonstrations, inter-active displays and training classes directly to customer sites, where our customers can benefit most from the fluid connector and hydraulic information they need to do their jobs," said Phil Lund. "It's been our experience that our customer's appreciate that the latest technologies are brought directly to the plant, keeping their production team informed about new applications, without having to send them off-site to trade shows and training," said Lund.

The Parker Tech Tour vehicle consists of a 79 foot trailer and tractor with a combined weight of 78,000 pounds. The trailer is on the road throughout the year across the country and in Canada. Among the various training classes the topics covered include hydraulic maintenance, dry technology plumbing, tube fabrication, cartridge valve technology and the proper sizing of pneumatic systems. Also, as part of its "Innovation in Motion" concept, Parker has included a motion simulator on-board the trailer. It has a seating capacity for six people and is sure to be a hit for visitors as they experience Parker's total system solution by riding in the motion simulator from Doron Precision Systems, Inc.

It features motion and control products from Parker, Kaeser Compressors, GE Fanuc, Cutler-Hammer and other manufacturers.
