Hydrastore is an ISO 9001:2015 quality assured company and one of the UK’s leading suppliers of hydraulic components and complete systems. In 2017, Hydrastore expanded its operations with the introduction of new branches in Birmingham and Washington.
The combined knowledge and experience of the team offers a complete service from initial advice and technical support to full design, manufacture and installation. Hydrastore provides for almost any hydraulic application and over the past 25 years has delivered solutions to a host of industrial sectors.
From its premises in Birmingham, as well as hydraulic component supply, Hydrastore offers power unit design, build, installation and commissioning; system design from concept through to completion; supplying a full hydraulics and electrical controls solution with particular focus on energy efficiency improvements; maintenance and preventative maintenance programs and system technical troubleshooting.
Its products go out to companies in a range of sectors including industrial, press shops, process plants, test houses, construction and food processing.
Hydrastore’s head office has recently expanded the workshop area from 3300 sq ft to 11,000 sq ft. This extra space improves workflow and efficiency, provides greater floor space for the technical and electrical/electronic department and provides space to accommodate a recently purchased 200kW pump and motor test rig and extra area for increased stock holding.
“Demand for hydraulic powerpacks is going up, so we are looking to reduce our lead times by investing in more workspace area,” explained Martin Castledine, commercial manager at Hydrastore Birmingham.
This investment in the workshop, which is expected to be operational within the next six months, may lead to the recruitment of additional staff in the future, Castledine added. Hydrastore invests in people by providing continual professional development and apprentice schemes for young enthusiastic engineers.
The expansion comes as Hydrastore looks increase its customer base in the Midlands. With this in mind, the company joined Made in the Midlands and will be exhibiting at the forthcoming Expo. “At the Expo we will be focusing on industrial applications that use hydraulic systems and hydraulic powerpacks,” said Castledine. “We will also be bringing industrial valves, hydraulic powerpacks and products from some of our suppliers. We will also display the control side of the business.”Back
