Parker Hannifin Corporation has signed an Enterprise Framework Agreement (EFA) with Shell as a single source supplier for the provision of instrumentation valves, manifolds, process-to-instrument valves, fittings, tubing, protective enclosures and related products.
Under the terms of Shell’s EFA - which runs for an initial period of five years – Parker’s Instrumentation Group will supply Shell and its affiliates worldwide with a broad range of process instrumentation products.
“We are delighted to win this contract with such a major player in the oil and gas business, and are confident that our manufacturing resources on three continents and our global Parker Sales Company support network will meet the enormous challenges of this supply agreement”, says Ian Huggins, general manager of Parker Hannifin’s Instrumentation Products Division in Europe. “We are also excited at the prospect of closer engineering co-operation, as this will give us a front row view of emerging technical challenges in critical application areas.”
“We see this agreement marking the start of a sustained period of progress in instrumentation technology”, adds Sheldon Banks, EMEA sales and marketing manager of Parker Hannifin Instrumentation Products Division in Europe. “We believe that such a co-operative relationship between major players in their respective spheres will help to establish many new standards for performance, safety and cost reduction.”
