Last week, technical representatives from Zatkoff Seals & Packings and Parker Hannifin’s Engineered Materials Group (EMG) came together for a three-day training event. With a collaborative approach, they utilized new project management tools and practiced skills to help them recognize and address tough issues confronting our customers. With a better understanding of these difficulties, our team of technical representatives can more effectively use Zatkoff and Parker resources to create value for our respected customers moving forward.

  • Stock-outs
  • Excess inventory
  • Warranty returns
  • Product field failures
  • Lack of design support
  • Time-consuming accounts payable process
  • Inventory count discrepancies
  • Re-labeling of received components
  • Unmet product launch deadlines
