Parker's history

The Story of Parker's History is an interesting account of the transformation of technology over a period of nearly 100 years. We believe our future growth is assured by honoring Parker’s tradition of excellence.

In 1917 Arthur Parker founded the Parker Appliance Company, which acquired the Hannifin Company in 1957. Hence the name Parker Hannifin.

In 1970 Parker Hannifin settled in Norway with headquarters in Oslo.

Today the Norwegian headoffice is located in Asker, with offices in Kristiansand, Stavanger, Bergen, Alesund and Trondheim.
