Parker Hannifin
Global Headquarters

From the new Parker Plaza with water features that reside in crescent-shaped pools to multimedia presentations and exhibits throughout the headquarters, Parker Hannifin is presented as the global leader in motion and control technology.

In the main lobby, a four-screen video takes the viewer from the Parker plaza laminar stream fountains to the tarmac where a jet is fueled. Adjacent to the main lobby is a Theater Area with a 30-foot wall of history and columns featuring patents. Finally, the Innovation Area creates a sense of motion through its space and prepares one for the future of Parker technology.

Every inch of the space is designed to be as smart and creative as the people who work there.
