Who is CETOP? CETOP is the abbreviation of Comité Européen des Transmissions Oléohydrauliques et Pneumatiques. CETOP is the European Fluid Power Committee.
Thus, it is:

· The communication platform for fluid power in Europe.
· The international umbrella organisation and communication platform for the
fluid power associations in Europe.

Through the 18 national associations which are member of CETOP, all well known companies in Europe belong to the European Committee. Many of these companies are leading fluid power manufacturers and major players in the international markets.

CETOP represents more than 1,000 companies - mainly manufacturers, but also some dealers - with almost 70,000 employees and a market value of about 13 billion EURO. These account for a very high proportion of companies active in these fields - 80-90% in most countries.

CETOP cooperates with ISC - the International Statistics Committee with the aim of getting global Fluid Power Statistics, following commonly agreed definitions and nomenclatures. The following associations belong to ISC: CETOP (Europe), CHPSA (China), FPSI (India), JFPA (Japan), NFPA (USA), and TFPA (Taiwan).
