Watch for the New Distributor State of Fluid Power Industry Survey – Your Pulse of the Channel

Introducing NFPA’s first survey for distribution members, the State of the Fluid Power Industry – Distributors Survey (SOFP-D). This quick and easy monthly survey gives you the pulse of the distribution channel, with expectations for overall business, engineered systems, service/repairs, and inventories. And, along with the distributors’ results, participants also receive access to the manufacturers’ results every month!

It takes less than 5 minutes to complete!

On the second Monday of every month all NFPA distributor members receive the survey via e-mail with six multiple choice questions on

  • shipment projections,
  • hiring plans,
  • and inventory levels.

This free electronic opinion-based survey provides the only report that allows channel peers to express their opinion on the current and future state of our distribution channel every month.

Look for next month’s survey in your inbox on June 8th!

If you have any questions or feel someone specific in your company should complete this survey, please contact Eric Armstrong, (414) 778-3372.
