Parker’s O-Ring Division Changes Name to O-Ring & Engineered Seals Division Following Consolidations

LEXINGTON, KY, April 3, 2017 – The O-Ring Division of Parker Hannifin Corporation, the global leader in motion and control technologies, today announced that it is changing its name to the Parker O-Ring & Engineered Seals Division.
