Tom Parker celebrates 40th year

Tom Parker celebrates 40th year Tom Parker have been marking their 40th year in business in 2012 in various ways, culminating in a big celebration where staff members past and present all came together to mark the very special occasion.

The Preston based company was founded in 1972 when Tom Parker and his wife Enid set up the company to market innovative Swedish pneumatic couplings from CEJN to the UK fluid power industry. Over their 40 years, the company has expanded beyond the wildest dreams of Tom Parker and family. Tom Parker Ltd now distribute more than 35,000 carefully selected products from over 50 market leading brands, sourced worldwide. The company occupies two premises, strategically located at opposite ends of the country in Basingstoke and the head office in Preston, for optimum nation-wide coverage. The Preston facility boasts over 55,000 square foot of warehouse that houses the majority of it's catalogue components in stock, keeping Tom Parker Ltd ahead of the competition in terms of service and quality.

40 years is a landmark achievement for any company but for one that was started from a home living room and garage and still owned and directed by the same family is cause for real celebration. The Parkers were joined by employees past and present at the Marriott Hotel in Preston on the 22nd of September to celebrate the ongoing achievements of the company. Tom Parker was presented with an acrylic collage comprising photos dating back to 1972 by the staff as a commemorative gift.

Tom Parker, Managing Director had this to say of the event, "I really appreciate all of the good wishes and work that was put in to make the event such a wonderful night and for me personally, a memorable evening. I know that these things don't just happen, take our journey for example, but it's a testament to all staff that all of the hard work which has culminated over the last 40 years can be celebrated in such an outstanding manner."

Tom Parker Ltd started the year's celebrations by releasing their special anniversary edition catalogue back in January. With new brand introductions and a complete re-design, the Tom Parker Ltd catalogue is still the fluid power industry's most trusted companion. A distributor's conference in May and primary sponsor status at Airtech 2012 sealed the modern and professional elevation of the company to new heights. Tom Parker Ltd would like to thank all of their customers and resellers for their continued custom and support, acknowledging that none of the last 40 years of success would have been possible without them.
