Why are you named QP, and why the change from QP Hydraulics?2022-09-30T10:44:24-05:00

“Q” is the universal reference for flow (ΔQ) and “P” is the universal reference for pressure (ΔP). Since our products primarily dealt with controlling flow and pressure it was an obvious choice to name the company QP Hydraulics. With our expansion into the electronic joystick market we have recently rebranded our name and logo to QP to represent our commitment to producing the highest quality components serving both the hydraulic and electronic markets.
