Since 1917, creating standards for the pump industry has been the primary focus of the Hydraulic Institute. Hydraulic Institute standards, approved by the American National Standards Institute, are recognized worldwide. HI member companies and standards partners work collaboratively to produce brand-neutral standards, guidelines, and educational courses and material for use by the industry at large. To recognize those who participate in this effort at a high level, the Hydraulic Institute bestows the Standards VIP award on deserving members at both the individual and member-company level. The award is a significant honor that is recognized throughout the pump industry.
The employing companies of individuals who earn the Standards VIP award may display the Standards VIP logo on their website and in printed material, and may utilize customized press releases created by HI to make customers aware of this recognition. The individuals who receive the award are named in congratulatory recognition letters that are sent to their senior management, and their employers are highlighted on the HI website.
