State of the Fluid Power Industry – Distributor Survey (SOFP-D)
Introducing NFPA’s first survey for distribution members, the State of the Fluid Power Industry – Distributors Survey (SOFP-D). This quick and easy monthly survey gives you the pulse of the distribution channel, with expectations for overall business, engineered systems, service/repairs, and inventories. And, along with the distributors’ results, participants also receive access to the manufacturers’ results every month!
It takes less than 5 minutes to complete!
On the second Monday of every month all NFPA distributor members receive the survey via e-mail with six multiple choice questions on
- shipment projections,
- hiring plans,
- and inventory levels
This free electronic opinion-based survey provides the only report that allows channel peers to express their opinion on the current and future state of our distribution channel every month.
As a participant, these opinions, combined with diffusion indexing and NFPA analysis, allow you to:
- Identify the distribution channel’s position in the business cycle
- Anticipate how the distribution channel will do in the months to come
- Track distribution channel backlog and hiring plans
- Analyze the progress of your company compared to others.
Participate in the SOFP-D so you can keep up with the opinions of distributors and manufacturers on the state of the fluid power industry.
