Safeguard Your Hydraulic Systems and Equipment by Performing Regular Inspections


In every operation – regardless of application – owners and operators are looking to get the most out of their equipment. Seeking ways to prolong their lifespan, they strive to avoid costly maintenance, unplanned shutdowns, and critical malfunctions. One of the best ways to prevent these expenses is by regularly inspecting – and keeping a log of – the state of the components in your hydraulic system at the start and end of every shift. With this log, you will be better equipped to address minor issues before they become major problems. More importantly, you'll be taking active steps to maintain your equipment and, therefore, working to prolong its lifespan.

Ensure the Efficiency of Your Operation by Implementing Vendor Managed Inventory


At Depatie Fluid Power Company, we aren't just looking to carry a lot of parts, we'd rather be a valuable partner, a provider of vendor managed inventory, and an essential part of your operation. In that way, we can gain a true understanding of how your business works, look at how your inventory affects your processes, and – best of all – develop solutions that increase your overall efficiency. The true value, we believe, isn't in solving a single problem but in the ongoing alleviation of recurring burdens.

Backed by Parker's reputation for quality, we operate a dedicated Parker Store, allowing our customers quick, easy access to the parts they need, when they need them.

Parker Set to Enhance its Filtration Group by Acquiring CLARCOR


Earlier this month, Parker Hannifin Corporation announced that it would be acquiring CLARCOR Inc., a filtration company. Aiming to improve its offerings, the acquisition marks an important step in the expansion of Parker's Filtration Group. As CLARCOR's offerings complemented Parker's current product portfolio, the company's filtration products will slot right in to Parker's catalog. As a result, customers will be able to purchase leading brands directly from Parker. Some of these brands include CLARCOR, Baldwin, Altair, Clearcurrent, United Air Specialists and Purolator.
