Flying start for Parker’s US business
Parker has launched a new US division headed by Stu Gamble

Parker Plant has given its new US division a flying start by choosing CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2011 for the launch.”We’re overwhelmed at the amount of people who have welcomed us,” said vice president Stu Gamble, who heads up the new US operation.. 

“The US market is a very ‘now’ market -  very impatient,” said Gamble. UK-based Parker Plant already sold into the but customers want to be able to speak to somone straightaway and so the decision was taken to open up a US facility, which could also provide parts and servicing. “It’s not just about selling – it’s about taking care of customers,” he said. “Parker now has a presence in the US on a daily basis.”

The new business was set up this month, in what is also Parker’s centenery year. Gamble has managed to put his team together very quickly, drawing on contacts from his extensive experience in the industry.  He was formerly vice president of Sandvik’s mobile crushing and screening group.
