SJE is excited to announce that Julian Atchia, Vice President of R&D, was recently selected to serve as a Hydraulic Institute board member. He and two other new members will begin their three-year term at the Hydraulic Institute Annual Conference in Orlando, Florida, in March of 2022.

“The Hydraulic Institute has been a global authority in creating pump standards since 1917. It is a great honor to serve as a board member,” Atchia said.

The Hydraulic Institute is the largest association of pump industry manufacturers in North America. It has served member companies and pump users by providing product standards and a forum for the exchange of industry information. Board members are responsible for maintaining the missions, goals and key strategies of the Institute; ensuring adequate financial, staff and volunteer resources; and providing leadership support to key committees to accomplish Institute goals.
