The market in Indiana is focused on the automotive, packaging and medical industries. IFP's core competences are technology application support, value added service programs, and integrated solutions using electrical and fluid power technologies.

"We are pleased to be partnering with B&R in order to provide our Indiana customers with the latest technology in motion control and high-quality industrial automation components. Combining B&R's product technology leadership with IFP's local customer support and technical expertise will be a winning combination" says Bernie Clarke, President at IFP.
