Parker Hannifin Corp. has launched a training program to create a network of authorized contractors and service technicians to repair and install the company's line of supermarket refrigeration equipment. Contractors who enroll in the program will receive free FLO-CON valve training at least once a year, an Authorized FLO-CONtractor Savings Card, which entitles the contractor to an additional 3.5% rebate off the wholesale price of products, inclusion in the company's online and print directories plus other benefits.

To become an authorized contractor and participate in the program, the contractor must have placed an initial order of $2,000 worth of products from his local FLO-CON wholesaler between July 1, 2000 and June 30, 2001. Once the order has been submitted, the contractor must complete the application form and submit it along with receipts from the qualifying purchases to Parker Commercial Aftermarket Customer Service, 2445 South 25th Avenue, Broadview, Ill. 60155-3858. You can also call 800-742-2681.
