Parker Hannifin announced the expansion of its Certified Mobile Electrification Centers network with the addition of Soluciones Generales de Ingeniería (SGI), based in Zaragoza, Spain. SGI has been rigorously selected, and training has been undertaken to ensure that high standards of service, expertise, and quality,  which Parker is renowned for, are upheld. Specializing in the electrification of both light and heavy mobile machines, SGI supports customers from the initial design stages through to the commissioning of prototypes and the implementation of series production. Their scope of expertise encompasses Parker’s electric motors, drives, coolers, controllers, and control systems as well as Li-Ion batteries. This positions SGI as a one-stop partner for machine manufacturers embarking on their electrification journey. This synergy proves how more and more often even large companies have to establish extensive collaborations to frame this topic from energy infrastructure to chemistry.
