History

Mobile Hydraulic Systems Division Europe originates from acquisitions made by Parker and we have a long history within the industry.

The Borås facility was acquired as a part of VOAC Hydraulics in 1996. VOAC was owned by Volvo and Atlas Copco and was formed from Monsun Tison and Volvo Hydraulics. Monsun Tison has its roots in the 1920's and mobile valves has been on the agenda since 1950's.

The Grantham and Warwick facility were both acquired as a part of Commercial Intertech in the year 2000. Commercial Intertech was a company with a long tradition in hydraulics starting in the 1920's. Commercial acquired the Warwick facility from Keelavite Systems in 1981 and Keelavite has been in the market since 1935. The Grantham facility originates from Kontak Manufacturing Company Ltd that was founded 1947. In 1983, the company expanded with the acquisition of Rubery Owen Hydraulics and was then acquired by Commercial Hydraulics 1989.

In 2016, the Mobile Controls Division Europe was combined with the Hydraulic Cartridge Systems Division Europe and formed the Mobile Hydraulic Systems Division Europe, MSDE. The Hydraulic Cartridge Systems Division Europe developed out of Parker Hydraulics acquiring WATERMAN HYDRAULICS (1988), Fluid Power Systems (1998), GRESEN (1999) and Commercial Hydraulics (1999). The Division was named Parker-IHD in 2000. In 2005, Parker acquired STERLING HYDRAULICS, which became the Hydraulic Cartridge Systems Europe Division in July 2006.
