Parker's plant in Barnstaple designs and manufactures small-bore instrumentation tube fittings and process-to-instrument valves and manifolds for oil, gas, chemical, powergen and other processing and laboratory applications.
Parker has become the world's leading process instrumentation interfacing company through its dedication to innovation. Thanks to a company-wide commitment to a policy of continuous improvement, Parker has been responsible for many of the most significant breakthroughs in the performance, reliability and safety of instrumentation products in this important application sector.
In an industry that often views instrumentation products as a commodity, Parker's instrumentation fitting and valve solutions deliver genuine added value because of built-in advantages ranging from superior materials quality, to reduced potential leak paths, and enhanced performance stemming from close-coupling and proprietary design features. These gains have led to recognition and trust from a host of world-leading operators working in the most hostile and challenging conditions today - from deep offshore to the remotest regions of our world.
Barnstaple has also become probably the world's most advanced manufacturing plant for this type of product, through the adoption of lean principles and continual improvement. Its efficiency and speed of operations is so great that it serves as a model and education resource on lean manufacturing principles for the rest of the Parker Hannifin corporation.
