ParkerStore opens at J.H. Rose and Sons, Gillingham

Parker Hannifin is expanding still further its UK network of ParkerStores, with the opening of a new centre at J.H. Rose and Sons. Based in Gillingham, Dorset, the new ParkerStore offers a wide range of pneumatic, hydraulic, seals and filtration products and components. Just as importantly, the new ParkerStore forms a key part of the company's ongoing programme to help customers increase the productivity and profitability of their businesses, through a combination of innovative technology, product choice, local availability and competitive pricing, backed by technical knowledge and services.

Parker Hannifin is pioneering the ParkerStore concept both as a tool for helping key independent distributors expand their business operations, and as a method of getting the company's extensive range of products to end users even more quickly and efficiently. There is an extensive network of ParkerStores worldwide and Parker already boasts 2700 outlets. Each provides a large retail space where customers can easily find Parker products and benefit from the technical knowledge of specially trained onsite staff, who in turn can call on specialists from Parker for additional applications or product support.

The new J.H. Rose and Sons ParkerStore is the latest in the rapidly expanding UK network of ParkerStores. Co-director of J.H. Rose, Tim Rose, explains: "Our new ParkerStore will enable us to expand our existing services, marking the beginning of a new and exciting chapter in our history.

"The ParkerStore will provide a new retail space at our site at Station Yard, where customers can choose from a wide range of stock lines. Parker has always provided us with first-class support and this has been especially valuable in the run-up to the opening. They have helped us with everything from designing and setting up the retail area, with a full range of branded point-of-sale, displays and shop fittings, to providing technical and product training, and ongoing marketing and sales support."

Richard Fenner, Business Development Manager for ParkerStore in the UK, adds: "The ParkerStore programme offers all our distribution partners a proven business model that they can develop for use in their local areas. It offers real value both to the store operator and to their customers, bringing Parker technology and expertise within easy reach of everybody involved in the field of motion and control, regardless of whether they run a large industrial site, manage a smaller maintenance, construction or commercial vehicle operation, or are simply an occasional user of spares or component parts. In addition, as a business, we are rolling out an aggressive growth programme in the UK and our ParkerStores form a key element in this process."
