Appointment announced as Parker Hannifin confirms official sub-brand status
Parker Kittiwake, the global provider of asset control and protection technology, announced the appointment of Larry Rumbol as marine condition monitoring market development manager.
Rumbol’s pedigree stems from 35 years in the marine industry, including over 20 years as founder and director of Turbocharger Service International, where he oversaw growth to a turnover of £6.5 million.
The appointment comes as Parker Kittiwake moves into a new phase in its development, having recently been granted sub-brand status within Parker Hannifin Corporation, which acquired the company in 2012.
Rumbol enters the business as the industry prepares for the changes imposed by European and North American Emission Controls Areas from January 1, 2015, placing condition monitoring as a key feature of ship operations, as shipowners and operators adapt to new fuels, lubricants and technologies.
