IFPS Accepting Nominations for the 2023 Hall of Fame

Article By: Haley Nemeth

Hall of Fame Nominations are open!

Nominations for the Fluid Power Hall of Fame are now being accepted and will remain open until April 15th.

The Fluid Power industry’s success is through the efforts of dedicated individuals – the innovators, researchers, application engineers, educators, and sales and service personnel. These people are the reason our industry continues to thrive.

The Fluid Power Hall of Fame was established to acknowledge those individuals who have dedicated their careers and have made significant contributions to fluid power technology. 

Any person can nominate an individual, living, or deceased, who demonstrated excellence within their 25+ year fluid power career – one nomination per category (living or deceased) per person.


  • Those nominated are asked to complete an application (unless a posthumous nomination).
  • Verifiable 25+ cumulative years in the fluid power industry.

A panel of judges will review applications and select inductees. The inductees will be announced on June 19, 2023 – Fluid Power Professionals Day.
