Despite the challenges in the South African market for fluid power valves, Parker Hannifin, the international manufacturer of motion and control technologies, believes there is room for further modernization and development of fluid power valves.
"The local fluid power valve industry is represented on the market by highly competitive and leading global brands, as well as many generic or copy valves," says Keith Mullen sales manager of Parker Hannifin's South Africa Movement Systems Group (19459004).
He adds The ease with which resellers and end users can source lower cost products worldwide without having to build a local infrastructure - which would create job opportunities - is a major challenge with the established companies in the local industry confronted.
In addition, he says Engineering News that there is a demand for qualified personnel qualified to operate. There is an "all time high" in the fluid power industry, while the current availability of such capabilities is not in line with demand still keeping up with her. In addition, modernization opportunities have created a great demand for mechatronics graduates, and Mullen points out that the number of graduates in this industry is too low.
"Many local companies and the South African Fluid Power Association support the training and accreditation of craftsmen and technicians is a relief, but this is a long-term project for the industry. "
Meanwhile, Mullen mentions that the Parker Hannifin South Africa Sales Company has recognized the integration of electronics into their hydraulic range and pneumatic valve products represent a significant opportunity for growth.
For this reason, Parker Hannifin Sales Company's nationwide distribution network South Africa provides its customers with local sources of hydraulic and pneumatic products, providing them with the support they need to keep their businesses productive.
Also, the Parker Hannifin Sales Company South Africa has product development talent MS constantly looking for OEMs to develop new valve variants that improve performance and efficiency, and expand the distribution network to new markets and locations, Mullen says.
"The distribution network of Parker Hannifin The distribution company South Africa has been streamlined so that the company now has technically sound distributors that can directly meet most of the requirements of the South African market. "
Parker Hannifin distribution company South Africa will continue to consider options Mullen concludes with regard to its distribution network from an unexplored market growth perspective.
