Northborough, MA (11-19-2010) – Tony Cantone, President of The Hope Group, today announced that in partnership with its principal supplier, Parker Hannifin, an all-day seminar focused on the latest in motion and control technologies will be offered this spring at one or more of its locations in New England.

The seminar will be offered in multiple sections focusing on the electro-hydraulic, electro-mechanical, process filtration, pneumatic automation and hydraulic plumbing technologies emerging in the mobile and industrial marketplace worldwide. Many of the Parker Store customers have expressed an interest in these emerging technologies.
