Parker Instrumentation has won Preferred Supplier status for instrumentation manifolds from the process transmitter leader, Yokogawa Europe. The agreement covers the supply of a range of two-, three- and five-valve manifold blocks, components that allow fluid instrumentation to be interfaced to process tubing and piping with flow path arrangements to suit all standard process requirements.
With this agreement, Parker Instrumentation manifolds are now listed as part of Yokogawa Europe's SAP quoting and supply system, which ensures that Yokogawa can deliver best-in-class instrumentation systems to its customers rapidly and cost-effectively.
Efficiency of supply will be enhanced by stock, complementing Yokogawa's significant DPharp pressure transmitter stockholdings at its European Logistics Centre in The Netherlands. Yokogawa is also able to call on the substantial stockholdings of Parker Instrumentation's own logistics centres and distribution outlets throughout the European and African territories covered by the agreement.
Parker Instrumentation won preferred status on the basis of its design and manufacturing quality standards, and the strength of its manufacturing and supply chain - all attributes of which Yokogawa has practical knowledge and experience, on a number of projects.
Emmanuel de Montillet, business unit manager from Yokogawa Europe, comments: "This agreement aligns us with a proven leader in instrumentation manifolds, completes our Yokogawa Europe field instruments portfolio, and simplifies the administration and logistics of our business. It also builds a closer relationship with a supplier noted for improving the integrity of instrumentation components, providing great support for Yokogawa's core focus on bullet-proof reliability."
Parker Instrumentation's Patrick Barré adds: "Both our organisations are well-known for their involvement in large-scale instrumentation contracts, and this integration of our supply chains can only help to foster even greater efficiencies - helping to enhance the execution of major projects."
