More recently, Burke has returned to lead Primary Fluid Power systems division in 2018, which has gone from strength to strength.

Flowtech Fluid Power comments that Burke is widely known for his ever-positive attitude and infectious personality, which have been key factors in further developing the strong team at Primary Fluid Power and strengthening strategic partnerships with both suppliers and customers. As a result, Primary Fluid Power has seen it largest growth for over 10 years.
