Pump Suppliers and Systems Integrators

    • The Hydraulic Institute was established in 1917 to serve the pump industry. Originally the organization was comprised solely of companies that manufactured pumps and HI standards were written exclusively by this group.  But over time it was recognized that companies that manufacture the products used in and with pumps and pumping systems had valuable contributions to make to HI standards and to the organization as well.  Today our associate members work alongside their pump company counterparts in the development of standards, guidebooks and other educational resources for the worldwide pump user community.  Through HI, our associate members gain extraordinary access to pump industry leaders from North America and globally.

      Eligibility Requirements: Eligibility to apply for associate membership shall be open to corporations and firms engaged in the manufacture of such products as, but not limited to, motors, variable speed or other drivers, seals and sealing systems, bearings, component parts, gears, couplings, gauges, instrumentation and controls, coatings, lubricants and lubricating systems or the design and development of pump-specific software for ultimate use in or with pumps or pumping systems, regardless of the location where that manufacture occurs, provided that the corporation or firm sell into the North America market. Eligibility to apply for associate membership shall also be open to corporations and firms whose primary business is integration, manufacture and assembly of pump and pumping components into a system or modular solution, regardless of the location where that integration, manufacture and assembly occurs, provided that the corporation or firm sell such products into the North America market. Associate Members headquartered outside of North America, who manufacture wholly outside of North America but sell into the North America market, shall be authorized to designate a Standards Voting Representative to vote on standards and other technical matters, but shall not be authorized to designate an Executive Voting Representative to vote on non-technical matters.

      While all pump suppliers and systems integrators that sell into the North American market are eligible to join HI, the application forms and dues estimate calculations vary.
