Founded in 1981 by Lee and Rita Wissman, Triad Fluid Power began from the onset as a Parker Hannifin Fluid Connector Distributor. By 1988, Triad grew to become a full-line Parker pneumatic and hydraulics distributor.
The first Triad ParkerStore opened in 1994 in Englewood, OH, and throughout the 1990’s and early 2000’s Triad opened 5 additional ParkerStores.
In 2001, Lee and Rita’s son, Doug Wissman, became President & CEO.
In 2002, Triad Fluid Power merged with two other Ohio-based industrial distributors: Air-Draulics, Inc. and Midwest Fluid Power Company. With the merger, Triad Fluid Power changed its name to Triad Technologies to reflect expanded capabilities and product lines.
Growth continued and in 2008 Triad moved their headquarters from Englewood to a larger facility in Vandalia, OH.
In 2012, Triad acquired Pennington Rubber Company, a full-line industrial hose and accessory distributor headquartered in Cincinnati.
In 2015, Triad acquired Mega Fluidline Products (Mega), an authorized Parker Hannifin full-line fluid connector, hydraulic, pneumatic and seal products distributor serving Northeast Ohio. With the acquisition, the Triad ParkerStore™ network grew to include 5 more ParkerStores, including the first ParkerStore ever opened (in Brook Park, OH).
Today, Triad is one of the leading industrial distributors in Ohio, and is recognized by Parker Hannifin as a Hydraulic, Pneumatic, and Connector Technology Center. Triad serves all of Ohio, Southeast Michigan and Northern Kentucky through 4 offices: Vandalia (Corporate Headquarters), Maumee, Akron, and Cincinnati, as well as ParkerStores throughout Ohio and Michigan.
