Membership Types & Dues

Membership Types & Dues


NFPA is an association of supply chain partners—manufacturers, distributors, and suppliers. Each of these constituencies play an important role in helping NFPA fulfill its mission

  • Manufacturer
  • International
  • Distributor
  • Product Supplier
  • Service Supplier

Any firm or corporation or subsidiary or division thereof maintaining offices and manufacturing/assembly facilities in a country that is a member of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) shall be eligible for Manufacturer Membership in the Association if it meets all three of the following criteria for engineering, manufacturing and sales:

  1. Engineering
    For a minimum of two years the company shall have engaged in the design of proprietary products for the fluid power industry. Such products include fluid power components and complementary products such as controls and sensors that become a part of fluid power products. Modifications of products (such as port sizing and mounting mechanics) designed by others or by affiliates or the packaging of components made by others (such as circuit design and the design of power units) shall not be considered as fulfilling this criteria.
     
  2. Manufacturing 
    For a minimum of two years the company shall have engaged in the manufacturing of proprietary products for the fluid power industry. Companies whose operations involve assembly rather than manufacturing will satisfy this requirement only if they maintain total design control over the resulting products.
     
  3. Sales 
    The company's proprietary manufactured fluid power products are marketed and sold in the United States; or the company's proprietary manufactured complementary products are intended for installation on proprietary fluid power finished products that are, in turn, marketed and sold in the United States.

Prospective and existing Manufacturer Members have an affirmative obligation to verify to the satisfaction of the Association that they meet (or continue to meet) all criteria for membership in the Association as a Manufacturer Member. 

Manufacturer Member annual dues are based upon fluid power product sales in the U.S.
