The agreement between motion and control technologies company Parker Hannifin and engineering firm BMG was signed at BMG Park in Johannesburg, South Africa, a day before the start of the inaugural bauma Africa exhibition, at which Parker Hannifin exhibited.

The new strategic partnership will provide a guaranteed supply of Parker pneumatic, hydraulic, filtration and instrumentation components and systems to key accounts and end users, in industries including mining, manufacturing, process, transport, construction and logistics.

Parker distribution network currently extends to more than 13,000 locations worldwide with
more than 2000 ParkerStore locations sited internationally. According to Saulnier, the agreement represents "a great leap forward" as the company looks to increase its presence in the South African market.

Gavin Pelser, executive director of BMG, remarked, "This strategic partnership enhances the range of products and solutions that BMG offers to our customers in sub-Saharan Africa and is in line with BMG’s strategy to partner with world leaders such as Parker Hannifin.

"Parker products will be strategically stocked throughout sub-Saharan Africa and distributed through our national sales network, supported by technical expertise available in all major industrial regions."
