Hydreco Hydraulics is a leading niche provider of hydraulics solutions focusing on the construction, mining, transport and agriculture & farming segments. Hydreco designs, assembles and markets a range of hydraulics products and engineered hydraulic systems while outsourcing the manufacturing to a flexible supply chain. The joining of David Brown Hydraulics, Powauto and Hydreco in 1997 brought together some of the most respected products, people and heritage brands in the business.
The company was previously known as Hamworthy Hydraulics, and David Brown Hydraulics.
The market for Hydreco products is driven primarily by demand for vehicles with hydraulically actuated systems. This includes equipment used in the agricultural, construction, mining, oil and gas and heavy transportation sectors. Long-term global demand for such equipment is strong and growing as a result of the global infrastructure build-out currently taking place.
Hydreco has extensive and mature external supply chain relationships in Turkey, India, China, USA and Europe to manage the outsourced manufacturing. It utilises SAP business systems and logistics. In addition, it operates Six Sigma process management and has ISO 9000 quality systems.
The Company is headquartered in Poole in the south of England. It also has assembly and service capability in the UK, Norway, Italy, USA, Australia and Denmark with embedded engineering and assembly capabilities added in 2010 in India and China.
