Sid E. Parker, founder of Parker Boiler Co., designed the first “Parker” boiler in 1919. The current Parker Boiler Co. was established in 1946. Since that time, according to information from the company, Parker Boiler has lived up to its motto, “Never compromise for quality or safety.” In 1987 the company moved into a new 3 1/2 acre modern boiler facility, and in 2015 Parker Boiler Co. celebrated its 69th year as manufacturer of the Parker Industrial Packaged Water Tube Boiler.
Parker Boiler Co. makes commercial and residential boilers, water heaters and burners. Its steam boilers are available as indoor or outdoor units and can run on a variety of fuel options, whether atmospheric gas, propane, oil or a combination of these.
