Tom Parker Ltd celebrates 50th anniversary

14 June, 2022

The entire team at Tom Parker Ltd, including the Preston Northwest HQ, those based in the Basingstoke branch and the network of area sales managers covering the UK, report that they are immensely proud to be celebrating their 50th anniversary.

Tom Parker Ltd has worked hard over the past five decades to build a thriving business that now has 80+ employees and to earn a reputation as one of the leading fluid power distribution companies in the UK, while remaining an independent family business.

While there have been many changes throughout the company’s history, many of its core values remain the same. Tom Parker Ltd’s focus remains firmly on supplying high-quality connection solutions, while prioritising customers’ needs and providing high levels of technical advice and support.

Connection specialist

Mr Tom Parker first established the business back in 1972, distributing Swedish connection specialist Cejn’s quick connect couplings to the UK pneumatic and hydraulic market.

The company went from strength to strength, soon acquiring the UK distribution rights for products from American connection specialists CPC – Colder Products Company; both of whom the company is proud to work closely with to this day alongside a portfolio of other leading brands

In 1999, Tom Parker Ltd began producing product catalogues aimed at distribution, OEM and end users: building up a comprehensive resale network of companies who distribute fluid power products alongside their own ranges and specialist services throughout the UK.

One-stop fluid power shop Tom Parker Ltd considers its expert technical knowledge, high quality products, aftersales service and close working relationships with suppliers and customers to be its major ongoing strengths.

Tom Parker Ltd’s recently launched 2- year product catalogue contains 36,000 product lines with more than 80 brands spanning the pneumatics, hydraulics, industrial and process markets.

Services also provided from the company’s on-site facility is a BFPA-certified and approved hydraulic and pneumatic hose assembly, in-house pressure testing, and a 24-hour bespoke pneumatic cylinder build service.

UK sales manager and BFPDA board member, Seb Cole, comments: “We have built up a strong team here at Tom Parker Ltd with a wealth of experience. Our people, as well as our on-site vast stock levels and a passion for putting our customers’ needs first are the main reasons behind our ongoing success.

“We pride ourselves on our ability to source complete turnkey product solutions to the most challenging of fluid power projects. We particularly relish a challenge, so why not put us to the test?”
