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.

Chris Conway, Chairman, President and CEO of CLARCOR said, “Joining Parker provides a terrific opportunity to accelerate our mission of making our world cleaner and safer. […] We believe Parker is an ideal fit for CLARCOR as it shares both our culture and our passion for developing solutions to our customers’ complex filtration challenges. Becoming part of Parker, with its significant systems expertise and stellar reputation for quality and innovation, should only enhance and accelerate our strategic initiatives and technology development efforts.”

This acquisition means several things for Depatie’s customers. First, it means that we will be able to source even more of the industry’s best fluid power products. Second, it means that our customers will be able to purchase CLARCOR – and other brands – directly from Depatie while receiving the same level of customer service and support that you have come to expect from us.

At Depatie Fluid Power, we are proud to work with Parker and operate the area’s largest Parker Store. We believe, more than anything, in delivering value. Our customers have come to rely upon us to provide them with the industry’s highest quality parts at cost-effective, competitive prices.
