Industry has backed the Engineering Research Center for Compact and Efficient Fluid Power from its inception. In fact, the outpouring of support provided by fluid power manufacturers, distributors, suppliers and customers to this Center is unprecedented in ERC grant history. Member companies provide the Center with financial support through donations to the NFPA Pascal Giving Society.

Industry is actively engaged in other ways, too, through their seats on the CCEFP’s Industry Engagement Committee; through participation in bi-weekly webcasts, campus visits, and the Center’s annual meeting; and by offering to host student interns and participate in Capstone Design Projects.
