Parker Hannifin Corporation • Hose Products Division

First 50 years

Parker Hannifin’s Hose Products Division is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2015 and wanted to capture its history as a formal book. From her notes, Beth crafted an interesting and smartly written narrative that included relevant facts that required research well beyond Parker’s walls. The story took on its own life and Beth wasn’t satisfied until it was fully and properly told. She brought in outside resources when needed, managed these third parties and kept the project team up to date on the overall progress and timeline.

I highly recommend Beth as someone who can independently manage a project with many moving parts, as a strong writer, researcher and communicator.

Program Development Manager, Parker Hannifin Corporation

I have known Beth Kapes for several years.  Beth worked on a history book for one of our operating divisions and did an excellent job.  She researched the division and interviewed many of Parkers employees for this important project.  Beth is very professional, has great communication skills and is a real pleasure to work with.  My advice to Parker divisions was to use Beth for projects that require a professional approach by a diligent investigative writer.  Beth meets those qualifications.
