In a press release, IFPS officials stated, “The success of the Fluid Power industry is not in its hardware, pumps, valves, cylinders and hoses—but rather the success is through the efforts of our dedicated individuals—innovators, researchers, application engineers, educators, as well as sales and service personnel. These people are the reasons that our industry continues to thrive.”
IFPS also provided biographies of this year’s Hall of Fame class, which can be found on the following slides.
