Relationships Are Critical


Since our founding in 1975 as Ernst Fluid Power and through three generations of ownership, the critical component for our success is in the Partnerships that we develop with our customers, employees, and manufacturers. 

The partnership with our employees is the crucial element to providing this exceptional customer experience. Our team has over 100 years of direct industry experience and is passionate about providing cost-effective and high-quality solutions in a timely manner. Our retention and the passion of our employees is based in EFP creating an environment where employees see their impact and value as mission critical to providing an exceptional customer experience.

We have proven and long-standing partnerships with industry-leading manufacturers across the industrial automation space, and we are focused on continuously developing additional partnerships as we add to the depth and breadth of our product offerings, with the goal of providing a more robust and exceptional customer experience.  One of the key components to any successful partnership is trust. Our manufacturing partners have placed the ultimate level of trust in EFP Industrial Automation by allowing us to be their local and primary representative in the geographic markets that we serve. In turn and when needed, this partnership ensures that our customer has full access to the manufacturer’s technical and operational resources in providing cost-effective and custom solutions.
