Parker Hannifin is signing a worldwide representation agreement with the oil and gas systems integrator Proserv Group AS. Tube fittings, valves, manifolds and other components from the instrumentation products division of Parker Hannifin will be represented by Parker.
To enhance the efficiency of its system services, Proserv actively seeks relationships with suppliers who are able to provide premium-quality building-block components worldwide. Parker's very broad range of instrumentation fittings, valves and manifolds, and its global logistics network, proved the perfect match. In particular, Proserv was very impressed with the responsive nature of Parker's lean manufacturing operation in Barnstaple UK, which has become one of the leading suppliers into major oil and gas projects over the last decade.
Parker's Sheldon Banks notes: "Proserv is one of the strongest brands in the industry and has an enviable global footprint. Our agreement gives us the means to better serve oil major, design house and EPC clients - bringing mutual opportunities for rapid and sustainable growth."
"We have a very large requirement for instrumentation products and expertise, and Parker's range, responsive supply chain and innovative approach gives us what we need to satisfy the ever increasing demands of our clients," adds Proserv Group's CEO Arve Sem-Henriksen. "The product supply agreement we have with Parker will help us to build and deliver systems very rapidly and efficiently, and provide after-sales support with products from a globally-recognised source."
