"Voices of HI Members" - "We love to have our employees participate in the Hydraulic Institute because that gives them an opportunity to interact with their peers, with people from the industry, and participate in setting the standards for the industry. It's educational, it's relationship-building, so we find tremendous value and the expense of sending a lot of people is well worth it to us." Tom Ferguson, President, Flowserve Pump Division
"Voices of HI Associate Members" - "If you're selling to the pump industry and you have the opportunity to join the Hydraulic Institute as an Associate Member, you're crazy not to do it. You just cannot get this type of access. You're not in sales mode all the time, but you're building relationships and relationships are really what you build business on in the long term. And building those at the CEO level is a much stronger relationship than talking to a purchasing agent, trying to work your way up." David C. Brockway, President, Intelliquip, LLC
"HI Standards Partners" - "Working with the Hydraulic Institute in its standards development gives a company or senior people within a company the opportunity to make a difference – to get noticed in certain circles because they’re contributing to something that’s going to influence others. Influence not only people within the Hydraulic Institute but also those outside of the Institute who make use of the standards to ensure that appropriate pumps and systems get installed throughout the country and throughout the world." William D. Marscher, President, Mechanical Solutions, Inc.

CEO and President, Associate Member Company, and member of the Hydraulic Institute, says "In today’s fast paced business world, it’s more important than ever to choose how you invest your time and resources. The ultimate determination must be based on the return of that investment. Membership in the Hydraulic Institute has been one of the best decisions I have made." As an HI member, you become an influential participant in the creation of international technical standards, keep up-to-date on industry developments, and gain extraordinary access to pump industry leaders from North America and Europe.
The main benefit of participating in technical affairs for our company is the establishment of pump standards along with competing companies that are recognized by mutual customers and interested parties, both nationally and internationally. My personal benefit is the networking that is obtained with the other members. Chief Engineer, Member Company
Our first consideration was that we would be able to network with influential people of the pump industry. Now we realize there is much more to do as we work with our friends in the pump industry to develop guidelines and standards for the use of auxiliary products with pumps. We also enjoy the opportunity to participate in the education of the membership through seminars and committee membership. In turn we gain insight into the worldwide pump industry. Director of Engineering, Associate Member Company
