Throughout the remainder of the 20th century, Parker Hannifin focused its efforts on becoming the leader in fluid power technologies. After economic troubles in the 1970s, it expanded into the automotive aftermarket and aerospace industries - the company also designed parts used in the Apollo 11 moon landing in 1969. Furthermore, the company was called upon to provide equipment used inside the mechanical shark in Jaws (1975) as well as the Titanic replica used in the film of the same name (1997).
Today, Parker Hannifin is one of the largest makers of motion control technologies, offering a wide range of diversified industrial and aerospace products. It is ranked on the Fortune 500 with net sales of some 14.3 billion U.S. dollars in its 2018 fiscal year.
