Relying on Parker Hannifin global footprint, Parker Legris can support its global customer all over the world.
Parker began with only two people, Arthur Parker and Carl Klamm at the beginning of the 20th century. The journey from that two-person enterprise to a technological tour de force contains staggering setbacks and achievements, but through it all one thing has guided the company: the entrepreneurial spirit of Art Parker. Art created a culture that combined famile and fairness with innovation and determination.
To reinforce its pneumatic leadership, Parker Hannifin acquired in 2008 Legris SA, an industrial family owned company specialised in connection solutions for compressed air circuits.
Legris®’ history started in 1863, when Ambroise Legris® bought a small brass-turning business and grew to become a producer of industrial taps and valves. In the 1970s, Legris® SA stepped up its development thanks to a major innovation: the instant fitting for compressed air circuits. Relying on quality, innovation and proximity, Legris SA succeeded in becoming the global leader in pneumatic connection solutions.
The shared culture of Parker Hannifin and Legris® SA made the integration a success for both compagnies. That competitive and compassionate culture is alive and well, and continues to reflect the example of its founders. A winning culture can only be achieved with passionate people and engaged leaders who treat valued customers with deep respect. This is how Parker Legris and more largely all Parker Hannifin Divisions conduct business with integrity.
Parker Hannifin is a Fortune 250 global leader in motion and control technologies. For more than 100 years the company has engineered the success of its customers in a wide range of diversified industrial and aerospace markets. Parker is moving the transportation industry with a never-ending line of new product releases, offering improved features and performance characteristics that are designed to deliver direct application benefits.
