Procurement and Sourcing


One-Stop-Shop | Hydraulics Online is a truly integrated hydraulics supplier with a global footprint and independent access to over 80 hydraulic brands worldwide.

Many of our customers therefore choose to rationalise their supplier base and work with us as their single source of supply. Whether you have an internal procurement role or work in a dedicated procurement business on behalf of your clients, we know your role is vital in supporting the organisation’s strategic objectives of profitability, innovation and market expansion. Choosing the right partners plays a decisive role in your ability to do this.

Like you, we understand that value can be measured in a number of ways; often securing the rapid delivery of a much-needed part has far greater business value than shaving off an extra percentage point in a price negotiation.

However, there’s no escaping it: pricing and cost management are key performance measures. Procurement therefore needs to identify those suppliers who will:

  • explore improved pricing if you have time on your side and longer delivery lead times are an option;
  • offer volume discounts for larger order quantities or forward-orders;
  • recommend viable, cost-effective alternative solutions;
  • ensure that cost savings aren’t achieved at the expense of quality, or a prolonged or unmet delivery date;
  • ensure operational efficiencies and reducing the total cost of ownership over the lifetime of the asset/equipment, not just the initial product cost.

Hydraulics Online is that supplier. Your success is in our direct interest and we always work in the best interest of our procurement partners.

I was really impressed with your company; very knowledgeable and professional… I wish companies in the United States were more customer orientated – Procurement company.

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.

10 Reasons to Choose Us

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.

If it’s hydraulic we can design it, supply it, solve it or repair it… So let us take the pressure!

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.
