Hang in there, keep your chin up, fluid power industry!

Posted on December 7, 2009


Since 2009 has been a year most of us want to forget, we wanted to pass on some cheerful Christmas laughter for you that we received recently…


Hang in there!
    “Good news is that I truly out did myself this year with my Christmas decorations. The bad news is that I had to take him down after 2 days. I had more people come screaming up to my house than ever.Great stories. But two things made me take it down.
   First, the cops advised me that it would cause traffic accidents as they almost wrecked when they drove by.
    Second, a 55 year old lady grabbed the 75 pound ladder almost killed herself putting it against my house and didn’t realize it was fake until she climbed to the top (she was not happy). By the way, she was one of many people who attempted to do that. My yard couldn’t take it either. I have more than a few tire tracks where people literally drove up my yard.”


We have many more positions than our job board shows.  If you have industry experience in valves, pumps, motors, cylinders, hose and fittings, or filtration, and are looking for a position, send us your updated resume.  Here is a chart showing the number of jobs with the keywords “fluid power” which could include hydraulic, pneumatic, motion control, or power transmission. The positive increase in the number of jobs available has been fairly consistent since July…let’s hope the spike continues!
