Up until now, Hydraulic Institute membership was only open to pump and supplier companies that had manufacturing or assembly operations in the US, Canada or Mexico.
“The expansion of HI’s membership footprint is a natural response to current conditions in the global marketplace. It is in direct alignment with the Institute’s stated vision to be a global authority on pumps and pumping systems,” explained Hydraulic Institute executive director Bob Asdal. “The active involvement of global companies will strengthen and add vitality to HI and the volunteer committees that drive the standards, guidelines, education programs and other initiatives of the Institute. We expect both our current and new international members, as well as the North American pump industry as a whole, to benefit from the change.”
International members will be encouraged to participate extensively in Hydraulic Institute activities.
