Flowserve has been a long-term member of FDT Group and a participant on its technical working groups. Recently, it has upgraded its membership to ‘Sponsor’ status and assumed roles on both the FDT Board of Directors and Executive Committee.

FDT Group’s goal is to drive continued developments in open, standardised, universal network/device integration and asset management, innovating the way automation architectures connect and communicate in process, hybrid and discrete manufacturing, including motion control applications. 

Sponsoring-level members have the opportunity to join the FDT leadership team, filling positions on both the Board of Directors and Executive Committee to lead the larger FDT mission. 

Welcoming Ken Beatty, director of product engineering for Flowserve as FDT’s newest board member, and Ed Silva, R&D engineering manager for Flowserve assuming the executive committee role, Glenn Schulz Managing Director at FDT Group, said:“Flowserve’s longevity in the industrial automation market space, industry expertise, and commitment to today’s ‘Connected World’ with FDT is invaluable to our leadership team with the imminent launch of the FDT 3.0 (FDT IIoT Server or FITS) standard.”
