Share Your Expertise on the Fluid Power Forum Podcast

NFPA is now in its third year of producing our podcast, Fluid Power Forum. The podcast (which you can listen to here) aims to showcase the crucial role of hydraulics and pneumatics in our world.

We’re now looking for NFPA members who are interested in being interviewed about the implementation of their company’s products. The podcast focuses not on technical specifics, but instead on the unique applications of this technology. Previous episodes have included topics like electrified hydraulic systems in top loaderspneumatic innovations in solar power and hydraulic assist in vocational trucks. We’re also interested in speaking with members who are involved in NFPA workforce programs and are inspiring students to pursue careers in fluid power.

If you believe you or someone at your company would make a great guest for our show, email Maddie Parise ( to discuss logistics. Fluid Power Forum is designed to expand the reach of our industry, and we can’t do it without you!
