Connect with research and innovation

American manufacturing companies hold many keys to success. Lately, two ideas that come to mind most often are research and innovation. They are so connected, you can’t help but think of one without the other. Companies that manufacture and sell fluid power components are no exception. In fact, at the National Fluid Power Association’s Annual Conference last March, one of the speakers discussed the need for innovation — especially in fluid power technology.

New media starting to blend together
We have written a lot about social media recently both in our printed pages as well as in our blogs. As I understand it, social media continues to change and is even in a state of perpetual change. One thing that has become obvious to me is that there is now a blending of the new and the old. By old, I am referring to more traditional media like this printed magazine, but I am also referring to what can now be considered traditional websites and eNewsletters. The new — which is really only newer — is all aspects of social media including blogs, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and more.
Our industry has a solid future

Our staff recently attended the Industry and Economic Outlook Conference (IEOC) presented by the National Fluid Power Association (NFPA).  This annual event presents to individuals and companies making up the fluid power industry a review of the past year and a forecast of the coming year.
