What is an Onsite Container?

What is an Onsite Container - ParkerStore Onsite Container at mining jobsite - Parker Hannifin ParkerStoreRemote job sites typically found in mining, construction, and forestry, as well as airports and shipping ports, find that downtime is an expensive and unnecessary occurrence. Having the ability to apply preventative maintenance and repair to your hydraulic equipment at any time, is critical to site managers.

Maximize productivity

To maximize productivity, reducing the downtime associated with equipment repair or maintenance is critical. Having all the components sitting at your job site in a stand-alone container is the ideal scenario. Parker and our distributors deliver a fully stocked hydraulic workshop right to your job site. These highly efficient, container-based workshops provide all the equipment, technology, and inventory needed for on-location fabrication of hose and tube assemblies, filter components, and much more.

The program is specifically designed to support customers that have limited access to critical replacement parts due to physical (e.g., an outlying mine) or logistical (e.g., a busy airport) worksite constraints. When a new hose or tube assembly must be fabricated immediately to keep essential equipment up-and-running, ParkerStore Onsite Containers can help keep you productive and profitable. 

What's inside an Onsite Container

Onsite Containers come in two sizes, either a 20' or 40' long container and are specifically designed to withstand severe and demanding environments. They arrive at your job site with everything necessary for supporting your operation, including:

  •  Product inventory specifically tailored to your equipment and needs;

  •  Electrical and lighting;

  •  Insulation, heat and a/c units;

  •  Workbench, hose reels, and bulk fitting storage; 

  • Hose saw and crimper.
