  • Durable Goods New Orders
  • Capacity Utilization
  • And many more!
The NFPA Stats Toolkit is a cloud-based data analytics and visualization support tool that combines the user’s unique company data and NFPA data sources with popular analytical tools to identify market trends, recognize data relationships and develop custom projections within the fluid power industry.
