A Manufacturer member is any firm or corporation or subsidiary or division thereof maintaining offices and manufacturing/assembly facilities in the United States, Canada, or Mexico 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 in the United States, Canada, or Mexico. 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 shall not be considered as fulfilling this criterion.                      
  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, Canada, or Mexico; 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, Canada, or Mexico.

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.
