In its call of nominations, the International Fluid Power Society said that 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.
In 2019, 11 individuals were inducted into the Hall of Fame, with six of them being posthumously.
A special award has been established to acknowledge those individuals who have dedicated their careers, and have made significant contributions to fluid power technology.
2020 nominations will be accepted January 1 – April 15. Any person can nominate an individual, living or deceased, who demonstrated excellence within their 25+ year fluid power career. The nomination form is simple and other than contact information, only requires a brief description of why the person is being nominated. Those nominated are asked to complete a 13 question application.
A panel of judges review the applications and select the class of Inductees.
Nominations can be submitted at www.fluidpowerhalloffame.org.
