|  August 21, 2012 |

Parker Hannifin’s ParkerStore will open its 2,000th store, located near Lyon, France, in October.

Parker Hannifin spent 15 years opening its first 1,000 locations, but the number of stores has doubled in less than four years.

ParkerStore will celebrate its 2,000th opening at its new location in Chassieu, France, a suburb of Lyon. The store, which features approximately 1,600 square feet of retail space, will be the 12th ParkerStore that Patrick Martin, CEO and owner of Mabéo Industries, has opened in the past 14 years.
