Parker Aerospace, a business segment of Parker Hannifin Corporation (NYSE: PH), the global leader in motion and control technologies, today announced a pump call-out agreement with Emirates for its 777X aircraft. Emirates is the launch customer of the new Boeing aircraft with an order book of 150 777X, one of the single largest aircraft orders by value in the history of US commercial aviation. Parker will provide the hydraulic engine-driven pump and AC motor pump on the fleet of 777X wide-body airplanes.

Emirates, currently the largest operator of the Boeing 777 aircraft, expects to take delivery of the first 777X in 2020.

Parker Aerospace pumps offer a weight advantage, based on a design that utilizes material and manufacturing methods to reduce pump weight. For airline operators, this weight savings means the airplane has less mass to move. As a result, the aircraft burns less fuel, provides fuel savings over time, and creates fewer emissions.

“We are pleased to receive this order from Emirates,” said Business Unit Director Greg Norris, who oversees the EMEA region for Parker’s Customer Support Operations (CSO). “Our organizations have a good relationship that continues to grow and strengthen. Emirates’ choice reflects our belief that Parker’s engineering expertise and processes result in better products that outperform the competition.”
