When we decided to hold the Fluid Power Conference & Expo in Minnesota on June 26-27, 2012, we knew that the area was a stong industrial area with a significant fluid power presence. We were not aware of just how strong of a community of fluid power that exists in the area.
There are some major fluid power manufacturers in the area, many very significant fluid power distributors, and a real wealth of fluid power education. The U of M, where our event is being held, is the home school of the Center for Compact and Efficient Fluid Power. This is a huge R&D resource for our industry.
Add to that, the other local colleges with fluid power curriculums like Hennipin and Alexandria and a few others. The community is very interwoven with connections between manufacturing, distribution, and education.
We are thrilled to have picked such a great location for our event. For more information, please link to the Fluid Power Expo site at the bottom of the H&P homepage.
