These members have made serious investments of both time and money, and in return have helped spread information about our industry, and have reaped the benefits that come with connecting their companies to the schools and the science classrooms where some of their future employees are undoubtedly learning about them for the first time. In their honor, we launched the Fluid Power Challenge Champions Club—a series of awards that we will give at each Annual Conference to recognize the important milestones reached by every member who decides to take on these responsibilities. Here is a list of the first group of inductees:
- Master Pneumatic, hosted their very first Fluid Power Challenge in Michigan with 43 teams competing.
- Caterpillar, Inc., who hosted their inaugural Challenge in Illinois last November, had 17 teams competing.
- The University of Minnesota with three consecutive annual Challenges, had 22 teams participating this year.
- Wojanis Supply Company, Inc., with a track record of four consecutive annual Challenges, had 22 teams competing.
- Daman Products Company, Inc., in their fifth year of hosting, had 29 teams participating this year.
- Deltrol Fluid Products had four teams in their sixth year of hosting the Challenge.
- The Milwaukee School of Engineering has hosted seven events and this year had 34 teams competing.
- In addition to these seven, here are the other schools that have hosted a Challenge but could not attend the Annual Meeting – Georgia Tech, Cleveland Community College, Triton College, South Milwaukee High School and Waukesha STEM Academy.
