Does that mean a change of name for you as well Prof ??


I'm not sure that Prof Hannifin slips off the tongue as easily but we will have to get used to it I suppose. :D

But will the quality will remain?

Thats more important question.

I guess the Sporlan products will be sold by the Parker hannifin people from now on. looks like a good opportunity to raise prices. :mad:

One thing is certain... The Prof's employee e-mail address book has certainly increased. From perhaps 200 to something around 23,000... :(
