I am Rory McLaren, FPTI™’s founder, director, and chief designer. These are titles I earned by co-incidence. However, there is one title that defines my true profession, and certainly, the one of which I am most proud, and that’s “teacher.” Even though we have built an impressive organization, you won’t find me sitting in an office. You will either find me in a classroom, teaching students, or in a Train-the-Trainer workshop teaching my colleagues. I am Rory McLaren, FPTI™’s founder, director, and chief designer.

What you will find truly amazing about our company is that it was literally built in a classroom. Every training system, PowerPoint™ slide, textbook, DVD, cutaway model, graphic, animation: absolutely everything, came from my profound desire to impart knowledge about fluid power in a manner that made it possible for every student to understand.

How it all began.

Two decades ago I was teaching a class in Salt Lake City, Utah. One of my students, a teacher from a technical college in northern California, was so impressed with my training “system” that he asked if I would make a duplicate of it for him. I did, and the rest is history! Today you will find my hydraulic training systems is more than 30 technical colleges in the USA, Canada, Australia, Africa, Asia, South America, and Saudi Arabia. It is also the number one choice for Corporate Technical Training Centers. There’s a reason why FPTI™ is the fastest growing fluid power training systems provider in the world: ask any teacher who uses our system, or any student who has attended our workshops.

No one will ever care as much about making sure you get the most out of your investment, as we do “Absolutely no one!”
