Barnsley-based Ashton Seals Ltd had scored a new deal to become a distributor for sealing systems manufacturer Parker Prädifa.
The agreement will provide Ashton Seals’ customers with access to the full range of products and technical support network of Parker Prädifa,
Matthew Wood, technical director at Ashton Seals, said: “The distribution agreement with Parker Prädifa represents an exciting step forward for the continued development of Ashton Seals, it also fits in perfectly with our new core company strategies for the next three years.
“These include strengthening our presence in the sealing technology industry as well as branching into sectors where our market penetration is currently restricted.
“Our targets of expanding market penetration are supported by Parker Prädifa’s wide product application range.
“From mobile and stationary hydraulics, pneumatics, machinery and plant engineering, automotive, bio chemical pharmaceutical and medical, food processing, oil and gas, and semiconductors are just the start of the list of industries supported by our product range.”
Zoë Fearnley, managing director of Ashton Seals, added: “As a leading supplier of sealing and engineering solutions we are thrilled to enhance our existing product portfolio with the support of Parker Prädifa.”
Andy Hine, Parker Prädifa regional sales manager for north Europe, said the move will enable the company to expand. He added: “Parker Prädifa are excited to announce this partnership with Ashton Seals, an agreement that will enable us to expand our reach into additional markets.”
