Shell chooses Parker Hannifin as instrumentation supplier
01/04/2012BARNSTAPLE, England --- Parker Hannifin Corporation, the global leader in motion and control technologies, has signed an enterprise framework agreement (EFA) with Shell as a single-source supplier for the provision of instrumentation valves, manifolds, process-to-instrument valves, fittings, tubing, protective enclosures and related products. Under the terms of Shell's EFA--which runs for an initial period of five years--Parker's Instrumentation Group will supply Shell and its affiliates worldwide with a broad range of process instrumentation products.
"We are delighted to win this contract with such a major player in the oil and gas business and are confident that our manufacturing resources on three continents and our global Parker Sales Company support network will meet the enormous challenges of this supply agreement," says Ian Huggins, General Manager of Parker Hannifin's Instrumentation Products Division in Europe. "We are also excited with the prospect of closer engineering cooperation, as this will give us a front-row view of emerging technical challenges in critical application areas."
"We see this agreement marking the start of a sustained period of progress in instrumentation technology," adds Sheldon Banks, EMEA sales and marketing manager of Parker Hannifin Instrumentation Products Division in Europe. "We believe that such a cooperative relationship between major players in their respective spheres will help to establish many new standards for performance, safety and cost reduction."
Over the last decade, Parker has invested heavily in innovation and has made many significant advances in areas including safety, speed of installation and maintenance and lowering emissions.
Also important is Parker's long experience in designing and manufacturing instrumentation using specialized alloys that optimize protection against corrosion--a major problem for many current oil and gas projects.
