Etoy, Switzerland, 28 June 2017- Parker Hannifin, the global leader in the motion and control technologies, announces that Parker Hannifin Netherlands and Parker Hannifin BeLux entities will merge into a new organisation: Parker Hannifin Benelux as of July 1, 2017.
The two organisations will merge all the departments and continue operating from three locations in the Benelux region: Oldenzaal and Hendrik-Ido-Ambacht in the Netherlands and Nivelles, Belgium. The transition to the new sales entity will be very smooth for Parker’s customers with the only change being in the name.
Parker Netherlands and Parker BeLux have cooperated intensely over the past six months to prepare for the merger and seamless integration of the two organisations. With the joint organisation, Parker will be able to serve Benelux customers better, faster and more efficiently.
Freddy Eggengoor, General Manager of Parker Netherlands, will lead the new company. “The merger between Parker Hannifin Netherlands and BeLux is important for the future of Parker in the three countries,” says Eggengoor. “Our industries – especially in The Netherlands and Belgium - have many cross-country overlaps, and so do many of our customers. By merging the two Parker organisations, we will be better equipped to execute our WIN Strategy. The key element of our WIN Strategy is to create a better customer experience and the new Benelux organisation will improve our speed and level of service.”
