SECTOR: ORIGINAL EQUIPMENT MANUFACTURERS
You’re in safe hands | We’re an OEM partner with in-depth experience and know-how of everything hydraulic. We make it our business to understand your business.
We understand the importance of increasing the value of your brand and product range and the need for you to outperform the competition at every turn, as well as achieving your growth objective. Every project we work on is scrutinized to ensure a successful design and ongoing cost-effective manufacturing, using components that truly are ‘fit for purpose’.
Our ability to solve the toughest of hydraulic design challenges and take care of all your equipment supply and ongoing replenishment, makes us the obvious partner for original equipment manufacturers, both large and small alike.
We will work closely together with OEMs to specify the exact requirement in order for our clients to make informed purchasing decisions around technology, applications and costings.
Whether you work within a major PLC or run your own small business, are looking to produce in volume or simply a ‘one-off’, we can provide you with whatever level of support you need to ensure that your product is well-positioned in the marketplace. From upfront hydraulic systems design consultancy, through to prototyping and pre-production manufacturing, or as an ongoing production and service parts provider.
To date we’ve built up a loyal OEM customer base operating within a wide span of different industries including: metal work, agricultural machinery, furniture making, materials handling, civil engineering, marine and hydraulic lift solutions.
Our extensive and independent access to both leading and lesser-known, niche and specialist hydraulic equipment manufacturers from around the world, means that we have no product bias. Many of our customers choose to rationalise their supplier base and work with us as their single source of supply.
We understand that no OEM specification and hydraulic application is ever the same; your application may require a more complex installation, a part, which can only be sourced internationally, ATEX certification or a completely unique custom-made system design. Hydraulics Online can help with all of these scenarios.
Recently Hydraulics Online was approached by an OEM of mobile harvesting equipment to review the customer’s existing system design and highlight areas for possible improvement. Hydraulics Online put forward a revised systems design. The major changes centred on a new pump motor drive system together with all directional controls. These were implemented ahead of schedule and have delivered significant improvements to system performance, efficiency and costs for our client.
We approached Hydraulics Online 18 months ago for assistance in the design and supply of bespoke hydraulic control systems. As a result of their vast technical knowledge and wide product range available, we were able to develop a system which was both competitively priced and completely tailored to suit our application.
On another project, an original equipment manufacturer in New Zealand was looking for a hydraulic power pack manufacturer in the UK to provide a quality, British product. The team at Hydraulics Online have a wealth of experience in building and supplying hydraulic power packs, so we knew exactly what design and specification would work best in the customer’s application: a single-acting, 12v DC hydraulic power pack with flow control.
The customer requested a trial power pack; we built and shipped one the same day. We’re delighted to say that our hydraulic equipment is now an integral part of this OEM’s core product design with repeat business secured over a long period of time.
Since our initial projects with Hydraulics Online, we have worked together to develop further systems to complement our product range, further heightening our position in the market place. They have also been a valuable technical partner assisting our engineering personnel on site with issues faced in the field. Overall, a valuable tool for any business.
Partner with us and achieve things you might not think possible. We are a leading, award-winning, ISO 9001 accredited provider of customer-centric fluid power solutions to 130 countries and 24 sectors worldwide.
Our success is built on quality and technical know-how and the fact that we are 100% independent – we provide truly unbiased advice and the most optimal and cost-effective solutions for our customers. Every time.
We pride ourselves on our independence and vast product portfolio covering over 80 hydraulic brands. Our online catalogue only showcases a small selection of the products we can supply, so why not simply get in touch with one our technical team for personal service and expert advice via chat, email or phone – we’ll be delighted to help!
Our team is frequently tasked with sourcing seemingly obsolete and even unidentifiable hydraulic components, or swapping original hydraulic manufacturers’ equipment into modern, off-the-shelf standard products, with minimal, if any, re-engineering. We can also offer direct equivalents to many of the better known hydraulic brands; useful if you’re up against particularly tight time-scales or budgets.

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.
