Making A Difference – the NFPA Way

2014-Best-MachPerformanWebIt is great to hear that the work you are doing makes a difference. I received the letter below from Bill Parks, President of Deltrol Fluid Products. Deltrol hosts a Fluid Power Challenge at Harper College in Palatine, IL. He received a thank you letter from four girls who participated in their recent Fluid Power Challenge.

Bill said “I was touched by hearing the experience the team went through and what The Challenge meant to them. They described, better than I could, the reason we put on Challenge events.”

This all-girl team took the Best Machine Performance Award. Come out and visit a Challenge and see for yourself what a difference it makes.
