Same day turnaround via Parker's Rapid Service Unit

Parker Hannifin is introducing its Rapid Service Unit as a part of the existing Custom Manufacturing Operation. Created to serve the immediate needs of customers when timing is vital, the Rapid Service Unit can turn certain orders for critical fittings, hose-tube combinations and other custom pieces in the same day they are received.

Parker's Custom Manufacturing Operation was created to provide customers with a source for critical pieces, custom prototypes, or uncommon sized parts in one-piece or short-run productions. Parker's Custom Manufacturing Operation specialises in making custom and non-standard parts in uncommon sizes, including:

  • Custom bent and straight fittings
  • Unusual hose and tube combinations
  • Tube assemblies
  • Custom prototypes
  • Jump sizes
  • Steel, stainless steel, brass, aluminium, and special request alloys

Doug Gilbert, Marketing Manager of Parker's Hose Products Division, says: "When a customer realises a missing critical piece can shut down their operation, the Rapid Service Unit will do everything it can to ensure the customer gets the order when they need it. If it means delivering after hours to the shipping center or meeting a customer at their plane, the Rapid Service Unit team will do it. And there's no minimum order - a quantity of one gets it done."

The Custom Manufacturing Operation uses standard Parker hoses, fittings and tubing, and can create custom tube and compound assemblies in both metric and imperial connections to precisely match customer specifications.

Gilbert adds: "Our Rapid Service Unit can design, produce and deliver products in the time it would take most manufacturers to devise a plan, and everything produced is backed by the engineering and manufacturing expertise Parker is known for."

There is no minimum order for the custom manufacturing service. All products are designed, engineered, manufactured and tested to high standards, and Parker can provide DFARS (Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement) certification, pressure testing and the United States Military Standard (MIL-SPEC) specification.
