Parker Hannifin Establishes New Energy Grid Tie Division

Resources focused on the global energy market

CHARLOTTE NC, February 11, 2013 - The Automation Group of Parker Hannifin Corporation (NYSE: PH), the global leader in motion and control technologies, announced the formation of its new Energy Grid Tie Division. This division is located in Charlotte, NC, and will work with the company's SSD Drives Division, which was the initial source of much of its technology.

The new Energy Grid Tie Division is focusing its operational and global growth strategies on utility scale power conversion and energy storage products and technology. Its products are used to support the rapidly expanding renewable energy market and the associated energy storage requirements needed to integrate renewable sources and to improve utility grid stability and quality. Jim Hoelscher will lead the new division as General Manager. For more information on the new division, please visit www.parker.com/egt
