CLEVELAND — Parker Hannifin Corp. announced that it has acquired the hydraulics manufacturing division of PIX Transmissions Ltd., Nagpur, India. PIX manufactures a range of hydraulic and industrial hose, hose assemblies, and fittings primarily used in the general engineering, marine, agriculture, mining, construction, and HVAC markets.
