In addition to being an Authorized Distriparker-keep-it-real-logo-2butor, Fluid Power Solutions is also a Repair and Warranty center for Parker Hannifin and a strong supporter of Parker’s “Keep It Real” campaign. The “Keep it Real” campaign is a message to the market that states that when parts from unknown and unproven manufactures are used, there is no assurance that a product will perform as originally designed. Only genuine Parker parts used by an authorized repair center assure that the product will be repaired to the exact original configuration. That is a key advantage to the customer of the “Keep it Real” program.

The team at Fluid Power Solutions is excited and ready to support the market’s need for replacement units and parts for the Parker/Denison 61, 62, 63 and 900 series of hydraulic pumps.
