What impresses me most about Hydraulics Online is their passion. Hydraulics Online understand that excellent customer services are crucial in exports as you are building that business relationship from a distance. If you combine that with excellent customer services – which Hydraulics Online do – you can succeed in exports. I am very pleased to be working with them.
Veronica Dawson, Trade Adviser, UK Department for International Trade
Truly great to see how you challenged the status quo to create a global specialist e-commerce solution provider to a diverse customer base from nowhere. Your mantra of putting the customer first is often heard but clearly you succeeded.
Russell Towlson, UK Department for International Trade, Poland
It is very pleasing that Hydraulics Online won the export category in our FSB North West Business Awards. The firm offers a truly fantastic range of hydraulics products, making it an essential port of call for companies at home and abroad. The fact that it is a quality business is reflected in its continued success and growth, which also makes it a standard bearer in international trade for other businesses.

Thank you, Joanna. Mark’s quote was from a technical discussion which answered many questions that I have been trying to get without success from other suppliers. Please thank Mark for his time and expertise; it was so refreshing to have a knowledgeable person rather than a sales assistant.Read More
