About Us

FluidPowerNet (FPN) is a small team of specialised people helping to build an industrial marketplace specifically for businesses that specialise in hydraulics and pneumatics. We are committed to making the site the best possible resource for the fluid power industry, enabling you to source hard to find products, sell your surplus stock, and trade more effectively with your fellow industry experts. We do not want to change the sales channel, we just want to make it faster to find and trade in fluid power spare parts and services, and being part of FPN provides you with a network of fluid power companies, both locally and internationally.

FPN is exclusively for distributors, manufacturers and service providers – we do not work with end users or OEMs and we are completely independent.

We are not new to this, we have been doing the same thing in the bearing and power transmission industry since 1996 with our other company BearingNet. We have over 1870+ members from 80 countries and 11 million lines of inventory uploaded to the site….and this is what we plan on doing with FluidPowerNet!

Our story

Peter’s family have been in the bearing business since 1945 and BearingNet was the idea of Peter’s Uncle, John Bass. Founded in 1996, BearingNet has become the industry standard. Gary Jenkins is the technical expert behind both companies and Peter and Gary have been colleagues and friends for over 20 years.

After extensive research and development we are certain that a similar service could help the fluid power industry, so we set about creating FluidPowerNet.

The people behind the company are:
Nicola – the Commercial Director at BearingNet, who has been with BearingNet since 2007. Nicola leads the sales & marketing team and organises the BearingNet User Meetings.

Marcin has been with BearingNet for 4 years and is involved with marketing and business development.

Matt is our fluid power technical expert, and is working on making the site more relevant to the fluid power industry. Matt has worked in the industry for over 20 years and has experience in technical sales as well as fitting the parts.

The 5 of us, along with invaluable help from other BearingNet team members, will make FluidpowerNet the worlds best internet site for your industry. And as it grows it will become more and more powerful at delivering real business opportunities.

Come and join us on the journey and watch it grow!
