Custom Fluidpower announces the acquisition of Gladstone based Dynamic Hydraulics Pty Ltd.
Custom Fluidpower, a leading independently owned hydraulic solutions provider in Australia currently has a facility operating in Gladstone.
Welcoming Dynamic Hydraulics into the Custom Fluidpower Group, CEO Graeme Vennell observes that the addition of the Dynamic Hydraulics team to their current Gladstone facility will allow them to provide increased service levels to their local customers as well as offer current customers of Dynamic Hydraulics additional services such as design and engineering to cater to their complete fluid power requirements.
The Gladstone branch will continue to be supported with technical customer service support, engineering services and additional labour from Custom Fluidpower’s Brisbane and Mackay branches.
Over the coming months, Dynamic Hydraulics will relocate their offices, plant and workshop facilities into the existing Custom Fluidpower premises. Tony Pratt, the former owner of Dynamic Hydraulics, will join the Custom Fluidpower Group as Gladstone Operations Manager.
Custom Fluidpower has a solid history of experience in the provision of fluid power services relevant to the Gladstone region. These services include port authority ship loading hydraulic systems, underground mine machinery centralised lubrication systems, disc caliper braking systems for port and other conveyor drives, product supply and equipment overhauls for aluminium smelters and complete exploration drill rig hydraulic packages, including design and fitting.
Custom Fluidpower has a successful record of integrating local operations into the larger group. A Mackay-based hydraulic business acquired five years ago by Custom Fluidpower has grown to ten times its original size, and employs 30 local people with over 500 jobs going through the workshop each month.
Custom Fluidpower is a wholly Australian owned company offering hydraulic, pneumatic, filtration and lubrication product sales along with complete system design, installation and commissioning, and service and repairs. Custom Fluidpower services the agricultural, aerospace, exploration, industrial, marine, mobile, mining and material handling industries Australia wide.
