NFPA Member Profiles Sought for Today’s Motor Vehicles

Eric Lanke NFPA CEO



by Eric Lanke

NFPA member GIE Media has launched a new magazine—Today’s Motor Vehicles—focused on advances in the motor vehicle market, and they are hoping to profile other NFPA members who are bringing innovative advances to motor vehicles in its pages. Here’s a message from the magazine’s editor, Robert Schoenberger:

Dear NFPA members,

The motor vehicles market is changing rapidly. Both with consumer cars and commercial trucks, producers are struggling to find new, innovative ways to shed weight, improve fuel economy, boost safety, and give buyers the latest technology they want. And the fluid power industry is playing a major role in that transformation.

Whether it’s massive companies building hydraulically powered systems for refuse trucks or controls producers helping boost pressure on pneumatically controlled tools, vehicle makers are turning to suppliers and partners to find better ways of doing things. Our magazine, Today’s Motor Vehicles (in print or online at, strives to detail how the industry is rising to the market’s manufacturing, engineering, and design challenges.

In each issue, we have space set aside to highlight NFPA members and the fluid power world. Our goal is to run a profile each issue of an NFPA member, focusing on some technology or process that company is bringing into motor vehicles or into manufacturing them. If you think your company has a good story to tell, please send me a note at I’d love to hear from as many of you as possible.


Thank you,

Robert Schoenberger
Editor, Today’s Motor Vehicles
