Noblesville, IN – January 8th, 2020: Sidener Engineering, a premier Parker Hannifin distributor, announced today they have completed their corporate name change to Exotic Automation & Supply. Sidener was acquired by Michigan-headquartered Exotic Automation & Supply in April 2017 and has since significantly increased service levels to customers in Indiana and surrounding areas.

“Sidener has experienced accelerated growth since the acquisition.” Vince Staffilino, Regional Sales Manager said. “The name change exemplifies the future forward vision of Exotic to be the fluid power distributor of choice in Indiana.”

Since the acquisition, the company has become an authorized distributor for SKF lubrication products, Destaco clamp and gripper solutions, Barksdale control products and Parker Pneumatics. Two new ParkerStores were opened to service customers in Noblesville and Indianapolis and the company gained access to over $10 million of in-stock inventory.

“The past few years have been monumental for Exotic and expanding into Indiana played a big part in that.” Steve Orlando, Vice President of Sales & Marketing said. “We implemented new technology, gained access to new product lines and opened two ParkerStores in the Indianapolis region to support Indiana’s diversified markets.”
