On behalf of all of us here at Motion Canada, I am pleased to announce that, effective October 1, 2019,
we acquired The Fluid Power House (FPH).
FPH, now a Division of Motion Canada, is an engineering-focused, full-service fluid power distributor
supplying hydraulic systems and solutions to Canadian customers. With approximately 40 employees in
four locations in Ontario, the FPH serves a number of industries: Mobile Applications, Factory
Automation, Industrial Machinery Applications and Renewable Energy. Their primary suppliers align with
our current strategic supplier partnerships.
This partnership is a competitive advantage for Motion Canada, and aligns with our Profitable Growth
Strategy that builds upon our core capabilities – in this case, around our Motion Canada Services
offering. We already provide fluid power services, and with this acquisition, we can deliver a more
comprehensive and national approach to fluid power solutions for all of our customers.
Speaking of customers, on the day-to-day, it’s business as usual only now we have new resources and
capabilities to continue driving value for you, your teams and your organization.
We are excited for this next step forward in our vision to continually earn our place as business and
people leaders in our industry, and for the opportunity to deliver an exceptional experience to you, our
customer, as well as our shareholders, suppliers, employees and the communities in which we live and
We’re not waiting for the future of Motion Canada – we are creating it! Please join me in welcoming the
FPH family to ours, and please watch for more news in the near future.

Sr. Director, National Services
