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.

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.

Mateusz and Ania are both working on onboarding and customers service. Mateusz is based in Poland and Ania is in our UK office. They are busy doing demo’s, uploading inventory and helping to maintain the marketplace.

The 6 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!

What next?

What is it?

It’s a platform for fluid power distributors, manufacturers and service providers. Fluid power companies can list the inventory they currently have in stock as well as using our search function to find which company has the part you need (this means you can avoid the long lead time you can get with manufacturers). All trade is done directly between the companies, we are just the platform to help facilitate that trade. If users can’t find the part in the search database they can add it directly to the Wanted page, other users will be notified of this and if they can source it they will contact the company directly or via FPN. Plus if you have surplus stock that is just sitting in your warehouse you can list and sell this too on our Offers page!

Who has access to this platform?

We only allow access to distributors, resellers, system integrators and service providers, we never let end users or OEMs use the site. All data on FluidPowerNet (inventory and contact details) is completely confidential - no one within the site can see your entire inventory list, the search works by individual part numbers. And only members can see your contact details. So no need to worry, your data is safe!

I have inventory – can I sell it through the site?

Yes, if you have inventory currently in stock you can list it on FPN! The site is designed to help you both buy and sell. We have been dealing with inventory lists for 24 years. All you need to do is send us your list (in any format) and we will add it to your account. If a user searches for a part you have they will send you an inquiry and you can reply with price and delivery terms. You will receive the RFQ on FPN and also directly by email (email is the easiest way to reply).

What next?

To help the industry during this difficult time we are offering free unlimited usage to FPN. All you need to do is complete the short form here: and we will send you a username and password. But don’t put it off, register today and we will show you how FPN can really benefit your company!
