Our news this month includes a bitter-sweet move within IPD. We are excited to welcome back Mike Clogg as President and COO of IPD and at the same time sad to lose Yossi Zekri on a daily basis. Yossi became President through our restructuring 5 years ago and helped bring us to where we are today. More information on this can be found below.

Yossi – Thanks for your hard work and making IPD a great place to work, we look forward to your continued input as you move to your new position.

On the product development side, we are happy to release our new 3500 series water pump kit as well as other items listed on our New Products Listing below.
