There are many opportunities to network with people including NAHAD, NFPA, FPDA, and the many trade shows and I am always reminded at these events of how nice the people in the industry are. I am grateful for the opportunity to work with them.
At the NAHAD meeting, there were many fluid power professionals there representing lines of hose, fittings, couplings, crimpers and more. At the NFPA and FPDA meetings, there are people from all areas of fluid power technology who are equally pleasant to work with.
This is a fun industry!
