There are many distractions to accomplishment in any area. Business is no exception. So much of our economy is driven by momentum and confidence.
Unfortunately, our stock markets are driven by these factors and right now they are being driven downward. I believe that when investors regain confidence, we will see a resurgence of of all markets.
Our industrial markets are also driven to some extent by confidence. Confidence in the near future of markets is a key factor to growth. This is very true for the markets served by hydraulics and pneumatics. When engineering buyers and designers have a sense of confidence in the technology, they will continue to design fluid power into their machinery.
Because these engineers believe in the reliability, availability, and affordability of fluid power technology, they continue to buy and specify fluid power components and systems into the technology that moves industry.
We at Hydraulics & Pneumatics believe in fluid power technology and that is why we continue to produce the very best fluid power editorial content avaiable in the world. That is why we continue to circulate our magazine to qualified readers. And, that is why so many engineers and technicians turn to our web pages every day.
Industry will keep moving. Fluid power will keep moving industry. Confidence keeps us all moving forward.
