Parker Hannifin is heartless. No hard working individual has a safe job there. They reward management for keeping salary costs down and slackers who know how to yes their bosses. The average worker gets very little for all their dedication and hard work. This is a scrouge company.

I totaly agree. If they buy your company, you might as well start hunting a job. The are heartless. When a company has been around for 75 years, they bought it and closed us down. Think of the families they have hurt. The way I look at it You reep what you sow.

I was saddened to learn that Parker Lyons was closing. I helped obtain millions of dollars of business in Europe for the dryers and txvs produced there and visited the plants many times. Unfortunately, the products were eventually obsoleted by the advancement in aircon system technology and competition from Asia. I worked for PH virtually all my working life until retirement and they were a fine and ethical global company and an excellent employer.

It would appear most are disgruntled with parker from employees through to suppliers. Unfortunately this seems typical of most American PLC's.
Most existing UK suppliers are already looking for opportunities to move production to other customers and get out of dealing with Parker and one day i do hope competitors knock them off their perch.
Any investor in this company should really try and find the ins and outs of Parker as i do believe without good suppliers and employees this company can't survive.
After all where in China can you buy or assemble precision parts.
