“It really is an honor to lead efforts to develop the next edition of the fluid power industry’s most important trade show, IFPE,” said Klein, according to a press release published by the show. “I’ve been involved in this industry for more than twenty years, and nothing compares to the information, education, and opportunity that IFPE provides to our industry.”

“IFPE provides a dynamic global resource for industry professionals to keep up with the latest advances and interact with the fluid power community,” said Eric Lanke. “Both Marcia and Bob bring such a depth of knowledge about the fluid power world to the IFPE committee, I can’t wait to get to Vegas for the next show.”
