Since launching in 2011, the company has garnered a reputation as one of the leading manufacturers of specialist products for industrial gas and energy industries worldwide.

The company believes these targets will easily be achieved by 2018.

Parker President is continually innovating to produce new, improved products that meet market demand.

The company has always been committed to investing in staff training and development.

This means they appraise staff at all levels of the business, with everyone having their own training plans.

Their employees are actively encouraged to enhance their skills for their own personal and professional development.

The firm launched an apprentice scheme which is working well and demonstrates their commitment to the next generation.

Parker President supports the Made in Sheffield Ambassador and Work-Wise programme, which means they are a business champion for Bradfield School.

As part of this commitment they offer a number of placements every year to engineering students still at school. The company’s aim is to give students real life experience of working in an engineering company, that will be relevant to their future career and possibly identify potential employees for the future too.
