Parker Solvents Company was founded in 1953 by Robert C. Parker Sr. in Little Rock, Arkansas. He established this company at a time when there were very few companies in the solvents industry.
Based off of the success of our Little Rock location, Mr. Parker opened another facility in Fort Smith, AR. Three generations of the Parker family have maintained a level of customer service that is unmatched in this industry. Robert Parker Sr. retired in 1997, handing the company to his son, Robert Parker Jr. Mr. Parkers son continued to uphold his fathers strong belief in a customer service first company. Heading the company at present are Robert Jr.s daughters Holly Dempsey and Christina Cline. A lot has changed since 1953, but the way we take care of our customers and the quality of our products has always been held to the highest standard. We especially pride ourselves on the fact that our customers can always depend on us and know that they will not have to stop or slow production if they run out of product. We are proud to say that we are a family owned and operated corporation.
