Lynn Cortright, president of Parker's Climate and Industrial Controls Group, said, "Sporlan is a very successful company we've admired for a long time. Together, our two companies will have the most complete offering of valves and controls for the widest range of applications in the refrigeration and air conditioning markets today. From supermarket refrigeration to ice machines to residential and commercial air conditioning, Parker and Sporlan will have the ability to deliver total systems to our customers."

"We've respected Parker for many years," said Ken Ohlemeyer, president, Sporlan Valve Co. "When it became clear that Sporlan was ready to enter a new level of growth, Parker quickly emerged as the best partner. Parker's global infrastructure presents a great opportunity to expand the reach of Sporlan's products all over the world. I'm confident that joining Parker will offer our customers significant advantages."
