Thank you to all who celebrated June 19th – the first Fluid Power Professionals’ Day. The IFPS received emails from professionals of the industry sharing how they enjoyed the day. One great example came from Kraft Fluid Systems (pictured above). They celebrated by closing early and inviting all the employees back for some squirt gun games and BBQ!
In honor of the day, IFPS randomly selected three members to receive IFPS promo packs, including a free one-year membership. Congratulations to Todd Welsh, CFPS, CFPECS, Hydraquip-CSI; Stephen McAuley, CFPS, Motion Industries; and Gary Borgman, CFPCC, Pirtek Space Coast.
