Parker Hannifin, a Fortune 250 company in Cleveland, aims to extend its decade-long presence in Colorado Springs to triple its local staff.

As part of a first-phase expansion, the firm will hire 52 people at its Garden of the Gods facility, where it will develop its engine mobile aftermarket unit.

The company employs around 20 people for its current Springs operation, meaning its total local workforce will grow to more than 70.
